Villa Friekens is one of the few places left in Amsterdam which provides artists an affordable space to express themselves. We house amongst other things a circus training space, fully equipped screen- printing workshop and practice space for musicians and theatre groups. All on a non-profit basis.
Each year we celebrate our existence with the FriekFest. A two day indoor/outdoor festival inviting artists and musicians from all over the world. Paint&Beer, another annual event, focusses more on art and street art. In 2012 Paint&Beer was also exported to Amsterdam North Festival!
Villa Friekens houses over 30 people, some of us live in rooms we build in the old office building and others live in wagons and trucks spread over the terrain. We are a creative group of people that chose to live together in an alternative way.
