Art Ambassadors

Report this thing as inappropriate

Art ambassadors are residents of Almere who are happy to talk about their favourite artwork in the city. The artworks are a part of De Collectie Almere that Museum De Paviljoens manages. Art ambassadors share their personal story with other residents and keep an eye on things.

Museum De Paviljoens coordinates the project. Every two weeks a short interview with the new art ambassador will appear on this site, in the weekly publication Almere Deze Week and on the Almere-based site kunst-enzo.

Do you live in Almere? Do you have a fascination with artwork in your neighbourhood and do you enjoy talking about it? Museum De Paviljoens will gladly offer you more information about the art ambassadors via or telephone +31 36 5450400.
