Our VIVA ADM Festival is a non-comercial festival and has no funding and/or subsidy from outside, all possible profit goes to keep the ADM.. Everybody involved with this festival does that on a voluntary basis.
The 20 - 22 September 2018 is a unique chance to take a look inside the ADM. This squatted community celebrates it's
21 years of existence with music, theater, art, circus, and much more. In a city where thinking within existing
frameworks, economic interests and clean sidewalks dominate the public domain the ADM is an alternative community based
on solidarity, selforganisation, respect, and improvisation.
A place were Anti-conformists walk freely and Dreams still fly around and lay eggs. The ADM is under pressure now but still, it presents a huge program of international acts.
NOT TO BE MISSED!
THE ADM is the biggest and longest surviving cultural freehaven in the Netherlands, known over the whole world due to 21 years social and cultural renewal and hospitality. It is an organically grown village in the western harbours of Amsterdam, arising from the longing to experiment in all possible areas. The ADM is a niche in the margin of organised society. A laboratory where the arrangement of our daily lives is practised as an art form, where the development of simple and sustainable solutions are automatic and innovation is not trendy but pure necessity.
MANY cultural free-havens are gone already. It would be a complete loss for the city of Amsterdam, the Netherlands and even the world if the contributions of cultural free haven ADM would disappear.
THE PEOPLE of this self-regulating community are closely linked to each other by the space, visions and creations they share. On the terrain live some 130 people from all ages, nationalities and walks of life. Amongst them are: children and pensioners, theatre-makers and stage-builders, inventors and technicians, dancers and musicians, actors and directors, craftsmen and -women, sailors and buccaneerss, life-lovers and 'different-thinkers'...
WE IMPROVISE with time and money, test our place in the ecosystem, tinker with human relationships and build sculptures, compositions, heat sources and means of transport using another's waste. In a direct interaction with our environment we thus create alternative ways of living, sharing, learning and growing.
Come and celebrate with us our 21 years, and show your support for freehaven ADM.
