University of the Underground receives the Creative Industries Fund NL Grant

November 2017, Amsterdam, NL
We are delighted to announce that the Stichting University of the Underground run by dr. Nelly Ben Hayoun has received a Design Grant from the Creative Industries Fund NL to run a series of live events entitled "The Dreamers of the Day" with the University's partners at De Marktkantine.
The series will enable you to meet the dangerous creatives who dream with open eyes and manufacture countercultures, radios, pirates utopias and experiences for power shifts. We will unravel the dusty recesses of our minds and slice open designers' brains in an extraordinary surreal and decadent series of live events. 
Partners and Speakers will be announced in January 2018, and you will be able to book for these unique events online on our soon to be redesigned website on

Part of this endeavour is the interdisciplinary interplay between the cultural, social and economic domains.
