The Netherlands is well known for its creative, innovative approach and actively works together with Brazil in the field of the arts, design, architecture and cultural heritage.

São Paulo Art Biennial

Brazil and the Netherlands are both famous for their creativity. Working together in the field of the arts strengthens international cooperation and inspires new artists. This involves finding the right partner, exchanging knowledge and working together.

In a globalized world, cooperation is of key importance. The work of artists and creatives inspires and explores new possibilities. By working together, designers from Brazil and the Netherlands think about creative solutions to issues that transcend national borders, such as climate change and sustainability.
