Grown out of a Dutch Performing Arts commissioned research survey, Going Dutch is a new JPN-Dutch Performing Arts joint initiative to create opportunities for audiences in the UK and Republic of Ireland to hear a wider range of Dutch artists.

In order to identify and assess artists that would be appropriate for promotion by JPN members, it was seen as essential that there should be opportunities for promoters to hear the musicians playing live to audiences, in The Netherlands or the UK and RoI, with other digital opportunities used to complement this experience.

A programme of invitations for JPN members (including broadcasters and journalists as well as promoters) to festivals and events in The Netherlands as well as Going Dutch programmes in the UK have taken place and will continue as the collaboration grows stronger. See below for upcoming UK and RoI tour dates.
