Arts and culture space

The former shooting range is an elongated concrete building in which the Dutch Navy used to have their shooting exercises.

After an extensive renovation with reused materials, the Shooting range (Schietbaan) is now open for arts and culture. Beneath the large grandstand staircase, which leads from an open plaza to the roof of the Shooting range, Kometen Brood Loket runs a little bakery.  The rooftop walkway offers great views of the city.

Arts and culture program

The Marineterrein is a research area for future cities and urban challenges. A collective of organizations and knowledge institutions are discovering how the city can best adapt to the rapidly changing world.

To explore and help shape the city of the future, Bureau Marineterrein has set up a program for experimental arts and culture projects in the exhibition space of the Shooting range.

Your project must meet at least the following conditions: 

  • You collaborate with an organisation based on the Marineterrein and/or the project addresses urban challenges.
  • The project has an experimental character.
  • The project is lacking sufficient space in the city.
