European Association of Cultural Researchers e.V.

Marielle Hendriks

Director of the Boekman Foundation, an independent research centre for arts and culture, based in Amsterdam. We collect and disseminate data, knowledge and information about the arts and culture in both policy and practice, in the Netherlands and beyond.

In recent years we developed the Arts Index Netherlands in co-operation with The Netherlands Institute for Social Research SCP. This 'vitality barometer' offers in-dept insights in the fields of consumer behaviours, employment, financial flows, organisational structures and public support for arts and culture in the Dutch society.

Main research fields:
  • Cultural policies / arts administration
  • Documentation / archives
  • Empirical methods / statistics
