We're looking for Board Members!

During the award period until 2029, Treehouse aims to become a high-profile place for cultural experimentation and innovation; attractive to both creators and audiences who want to explore the boundaries of art.

The unpaid board of the Treehouse NDSM Foundation is (remotely) responsible for the breeding place. The execution is delegated to the director and a team of 5 employees. The board is concerned with strategy and policy, and (if requested) helps think about and controls the implementation.
