Fameus sees it as its task to pursue an amateur art field that reflects the demographic composition of the city and in which there is room for art that is created from different frames of reference.

Bringing people, organizations and ideas together, looking beyond borders and stimulating new networks are of great importance for the realization of our assignment.

Fameus wants to use amateur art to find a joint answer to contemporary social challenges. We are committed to the future. This involves a lot of experimentation, but also small-scale initiatives that can grow slowly or have proven their worth.

Famous believes that amateur arts can be a unifying force in our super-diverse society: in a street, neighbourhood, neighborhood or community. Where human contact, amazement and interaction between maker and audience are central, regardless of origin, orientation, ideology, social and economic position. We support and propagate the effort to be both artistically inspiring and socially connecting.
