Our institutional renaming from Witte de With Center for Contemporary Art to Kunstinstituut Melly came into effect on 27 January 2021. This website provides details of our years-long Name Change Initiative.

Our Name Change Initiative involves more than solely renaming our institution. It has also entailed an ongoing diversification of the team and the creation of a new, freely accessible programming space, with an embedded collective learning methodology, among other actions.

This said, our institutional commitment to work towards a more inclusive society is ongoing and has no end date. We invite you to participate in this ongoing transformation.
