Contemporary art occupies an unavoidable place in society and is important for the social debate. It is a fact that studio buildings and creative incubators contribute to positive inner-city, social and economic developments.
The Orange Tree Art Project (TOT) Foundation wants to offer a platform and workplace for artists working regionally and internationally and aims to enter into collaborations between artists working in various disciplines. This is done by organizing interdisciplinary art projects in which collaboration is sought and by offering both a workplace and a platform in order to reach an engaged and interested audience. TOT has ambitions at a national level, but always seeks a connection with the city in order to be a valuable stimulus for art in Rotterdam.
