ARTIST or student

Are you an artist or student and want to join Young Stedelijk? Send an email to for information about the special rate.


Join Young Stedelijk for five years and your membership is partly tax-deductible. Your periodical contribution is 125% deductible from your taxable income. You do still pay your annual contribution.


The goal of Young Stedelijk is to make the world of modern and contemporary art and design more widely accessible to young people. Through members, ambassadors, and collaborations with other venues, Young Stedelijk aspires to be a sounding board for the young society in Amsterdam.

As a member, you contribute your dues to special projects at the Stedelijk. Every year, we announce a work of art that can be purchased thanks to Young Stedelijk. Thanks in part to the annual contributions of Young Stedelijk members, in 2021 the Stedelijk was able to purchase the work To Teach or to Assume Authority (2018-2019) by Sarah Zapata, an important addition to the museum's collection.
