About us

SPUI25 is the academic-cultural podium of Amsterdam. Since 2007, we have been giving scientists, authors, artists and other thinkers the opportunity to shine a light on issues that occupy, inspire or concern them. In cooperation with a large number of academic and cultural partners, we organize between 250 and 300 freely accessible programs per year. These are enriching, often interdisciplinary programs that move between science and culture, fact and fiction.

The programming of SPUI25 builds a bridge between science, the arts and society. Our broadly interested audience can attend up to two events per day – since the start of COVID-19, these can also be accessed from home via a live stream or on demand via our online channels. This would not be possible without the inspiration and thinking power of our unique network of academic and cultural partners and parties.

As long as COVID-19 forces us to keep our doors closed to the public, we will offer our programs fully online. During lockdown, we will keep opening up the treasure chambers of science and culture, and we will continue to specify and question social developments.
