About the Dutch Centre The Dutch Centre in London kicked off in 2013 with a diverse programme showcasing the very best of Dutch arts and culture. We aim to provide a unique focal point for the promotion of Dutch culture and heritage in the UK. The programme of the Dutch Centre offers a wide variety of events; screening the newest Dutch films, talks and lectures, literature nights, live comedy, concerts and exhibitions by Dutch artists and designers. Our fantastic venue at Austin Friars gives us a prime location to host exciting events. Our audience The Dutch Centre is not just for Dutch people living in the UK but also attracts a much wider audience from in and around London. We aim to reach out to everyone interested in arts and culture or those who want to learn more about the rich cultural life The Netherlands has to offer.

At our opening night tomorrow's Low Countries Film Festival we kick off with UNLOST, a cinematic concert about the ever increasing contemporary melancholy, fear and the alienation between different cultural groups in society.

Captivating songs by the French composer Olivier Messiaen will be performed live alongside a projection of a short silent film, which was written and directed especially for these songs. A beautiful concept by soprano Florien Hilgenkamp.
