The traditional New Year’s Dip marks the start of the cultural calendar in Utrecht. It features mostly free performances, workshops, lectures, exhibitions and shows for young and old. This year’s edition focuses on talented young artistes and new creative hotspots. We also celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Dutch De Stijl artistic movement. You can build your own furniture on Stadhuisplein and there’s an ‘Utrecht Made’ exhibition in the Stayokay hostel on the Neude, showing work by local makers inspired by De Stijl. And for kids from 4 years old, there are all kinds of musical workshops in Winkel van Sinkel.
