Nozum is about the collectivism of individualism. It’s about being your own. It’s about being in general. And how by creating, we come into being.
The first time people were labeled ‘nozems’ was in the 1950s. It described the rebellious youth culture that was inspired by rock & roll. Dutch youth found an identity through motorbikes, music, cigarettes and creativity. And they were seen as problems.
There’s a difference, however, between problems (as “they” see it) and challenges (as “we” see it). Nozum sees ramps in thresholds, and wants to provide ramps to creatives that like challenges.
This is the kickstart.
On 2-3-2018 Nozum presents a full evening program in which we invite creatives with different disciplines and experiences to show, perform and tell about their work. A juxtaposition of inspiring talks, great music, and engaging artworks. All taking place in Cultureel centrum 't fijnhout which will hopefully be the ramp that launches new creations.
