For 30 years, Hotel Arena has been a cultural meeting place where we connect our guests with art, culture and design. We are an open place where we offer young talent and established artists a place to exhibit their work to the general public. We support cultural institutions and initiatives with special rates or free use of our spaces.
We are also an active part of the neighbourhood network ‘De Plantage’. This organisation has a strong CSR policy, and is committed to informing and inspiring the entrepreneurs and local residents of Amsterdam East of everything that happens in East. From this organisation, there are many green initiatives to keep the Plantage a vibrant neighbourhood, save the environment and live and work more sustainably.
We also work together with the BIZ Oosterpark from a steering position. This Business Investment Zone is committed to interconnection (networking) and undertakes activities for the Oosterpark, such as installing Christmas lights at the entrances, organising school assignments around waste and safety and the purchase of an AED and support for neighbourhood festival Tropisch Oost.
