The Tangoweek is organized by the Dutch International Tangoweek foundation. It is the only independent and national operating tangofoundation.
In the years since its foundation in 2014, the Dutch International Tangoweek has grown into the only tango festival in Western Europe where music is central. The multi-day festival and the one-day tango clubs distinguish themselves by giving space to musical professionals from home and abroad. Of course there is a lot of space for dance during the events. However, it is not an obligation or necessity to be able to dance. You can also enjoy the music in other ways.
Board of directors:
Members of the board are selected because they have a passion for the Argentine Tango and without any business interests (f.e. run a Tangoschool) that can cause a conflict of interest with their work for the foundation. Members of the board don’t get payed for their involvement.
To make sure that the foundation has access to all the knowledge that is needed to perform, an advisory board is established. Members of the advisory board are chosen by the foundation board per year. This gives the foundation alle artist freedom while developing an innovative program. Members of the advisory board don’t get payed for their involvement.
The Dutch Tax Office has given the Tangoweek foundation an ANBI recognition. Donations to the Tangoweek foundation are for 125% or 150% tax-deductable. We also adapted the Gouvernace Cultural Code for honest and fair practice.
