STEIM needs your support!

Things are not well at STEIM. We are in the danger of losing our structural funding from the government, based on a review from the advisor board which called us 'closed and only appealing to a niche audience'.

Our call for support resulted in an enormous wave of responses from all over the world. We knew we had some friends, but we were happily surprised to see that it was more than we thought! We'd like to extend our thanks to all of you who sent in a letter or email.

In the meantime we've submitted our Response to the Council for Culture (stating why STEIM should be a part of the basic infrastructure), accompanied by the more than 1000 support letters and emails, and we've send an Addendum to the NFPK+ (the fund we are forwarded to by the Minister of Culture).

For those of you who didn't get the chance yet to voice your opinion about it all, you can still do so via the online form.

Breaking news: on July 1 the NFPK+ Fund's advisory committee has advised the Fund to support STEIM financially for the period 2009-2012! This advice still has to be confirmed by the Fund's board, but it is very promising.

Last update: STEIM is saved. The Ministry of Culture is going to support us for the next 4 years. Unfortunately the City of Amsterdam stayed with the advise, and we won't be supported by them anymore. As a result we won't be able to organize as much concerts as in previous years. Thank to everyone who supported us in these hard times.
