About WORM

WORM is an independent and forward-thinking cultural venue that has a unique,  and inspiring presence in Rotterdam, the Netherlands and the world.

We occupy a distinctive position in the cultural world thanks to our hybrid and decentralised approach, and the space we give to transdisciplinary artists. WORM has a strong reputation as an experimental culture house for music, film, club, art, talk, community and performance programmes. Approximately 500 public activities take place in WORM every year. And with (for example)over  140 active radio makers and many small-scale community projects continually working in the building, it is almost impossible to fully encompass what WORM is. We can say it is a living creative entity. The unique composition of our organisation has created an extensive network over time, with many trusted personal contacts and organisations, worldwide. We are a partner for many (inter)national venues and festivals, but also, still, that first point of contact for grassroots and informal organisations. We are constructive connectors,  often act as a critical friend, and aim for sustainable and reciprocal relationships.

You can read about the evolution from our current creative guise – the Open City – to  the new iteration of WORM, Ultimate Playground, in our Mission Statement. Read about the WORM 25 celebration programme and events here.
