In Zwolle's Spoorzone, work is underway to create an area where creative and innovative entrepreneurship, art, events and the training of tomorrow's talents take center stage. During the Hanseatic Year, everyone from the city and far beyond is welcome in the characteristic area where we offer a diverse and attractive cultural program during the period from late June to early September.

The Spoorzone accentuates Zwolle as a hub in the region with wide connections to the west (Randstad) and the east (Germany). This new Hanseatic Beacon provides ample 'runway' for new connections in and with the city through creative cultural experiments. Young creators from the creative industry can be found here.

What to expect?

In and around Perron038 we realize a cozy indoor and outdoor space with an artistic urban atmosphere. You can visit a number of larger events, take a look at the realization of special projects in which young talent collaborate with experienced professionals and in the weekends enjoy exhibitions, poetry & literature, music, theater and dance in the form of performances and workshops for all ages.
