The theme of the Thursday Night Live! programme on 6 February is ‘disruption as a methodology’. Cultural institutions are once again drafting their annual culture plans and subsidies are being awarded. By working together, Concrete Blossom and Het Nieuwe Instituut are developing a blueprint for inclusivity. To achieve this, Concrete Blossom employs disruption. But what exactly does this mean, in particular in an institutional context?
