Foam Photography Museum Amsterdam

Not a day goes by without one of our clients or colleagues commenting on photographs in our meeting rooms. They may reflect on the style of a photograph or ask why it is there. Discussion. That is what we wanted to achieve by displaying our collection of photographs in our Amsterdam office and on our homepage.

 

Photography museum Foam and De Brauw have started collaborating in 2010.

 

Geert Potjewijd, De Brauw’s managing partner says: “We would like to contribute to the cultural environment of Amsterdam and support young Dutch talented photographers. There is a natural match between Foam and De Brauw. Both organisations, with international ambitions, have quality as a basis.”

Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra

Since 2010 we have been supporting the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra. In this way we contribute to encourage the national and international excellence of the orchestra, a unique national treasure. We both share the love for our professions and the strive for excellence.

 

According to the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, the sponsorship enables them  to work with conductors and soloists of the highest level. This security is one of the pillars of the artistic policy and an enormous boost for the members of the orchestra.

 

The Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra is one of the very best orchestras in the world. But what makes the orchestra so special? Time and time again, critics have lauded its unique sound, which clearly stands out among thousands of others. Although sound is difficult to describe in words, the RCO’s string section has been called ‘velvety’, the sound of the brass ‘golden’, the timbre of the woodwinds ‘distinctly personal’ and the percussion have an international reputation. We are happy to be able to support the RCO on their ambitions.
