Team

Who are we?

ESNS is an ambitious organisation with employees and partners throughout the Netherlands and abroad. We keep our head office in Groningen and have a small office in Amsterdam-North.

Our mission is to shine the spotlight on Dutch and European artists worldwide. The organisation is entirely focused on getting results for artists and takes the supporting role it can have in the development of artists’ international careers at heart.

We strongly value sustainability, inclusiveness, talent development and rejuvenation. ESNS works according to the following codes; Code of Diversity & Inclusion, Fair Practice Code and Governance Code Culture, and is affiliated with the Green Deal and Key Change. We invite everyone from all cultural/social backgrounds to join our team. And we are happy to welcome you with us!
