In this presentation, Vera Kuipers, Sr. Policy Officer Performing Arts at the Consulate General of the Netherlands in New York, will explain how Dutch Culture USA is the liaison between Netherlands-based new music professionals and American presenters to help secure promotional and financial support for a variety of projects. To name a few recent examples:
Dutch Culture USA has partnered in bringing Asko|Schönberg Ensemble to Washington DC’s Library of Congress concert series, supported the Netherlands Chamber Choir to bring their concert cycle The Psalms Experience in the renowned White Light Festival of New York’s Lincoln Center, and it has supported The Art of Andriessen program performed and presented by the New York Philharmonic and National Sawdust.

A versatile Policy Officer, Vera Kuipers joined the Cultural Department in 2014 to proudly promote and support Dutch arts in the United States with a focus on Performing Arts, Film and Literature. She has been passionate about the world of live music across all genres ever since and is continuously expanding her professional network to contribute to the realization of new projects and visibility. Vera holds a Master of Arts in Theater Studies from the University of Amsterdam, which included an exchange semester at Hofstra University, NY, and currently pursues a Certificate in Arts Management at NYU. In the realm of new music, Vera has been enjoying fruitful collaborations with a myriad of organizations, such as National Sawdust, Center for Contemporary Opera, Library of Congress, NYPHIL, Carnegie Hall, White Light Festival, Met Live Arts and WinterJazzFest.
