COVID-19 measures

What you need to know before coming to CREA

Last update: 01/03/2022

We are very happy to open the doors of CREA again, but it is also exciting to bring people together in our building. At CREA we have always done this according to the guidelines and now we want to organise it as safely as possible. We therefore urge you to follow the current measures.

We follow the regulations of the national government. It is the visitors’ own responsibility only to come to CREA in good health. The basic rules remain important.

As of 25 February, the corona entry ticket is no longer valid and since 18 February, you no longer need to keep a 1.5-metre distance and wear a mouth mask at CREA. In other words, you will notice very little of Covid-19 at CREA.

For the time being, access to the main building will only be possible via the inner courtyard (near the bicycle shed).

For questions, please contact us at 020 525 1414 (during opening hours) or email

CREA courses

All current spring courses can take place at CREA and there will be no changes as a result of the press conference on 15/02/2022 (with the exception of the face mask requirement, 1.5 metre distance and the QR check).

It is being investigated whether the capacity of the spring courses that are still to start in April may be increased in connection with the lapsing of the 1.5 metre requirement. The air circulation and what fits within the course according to CREA will be examined in consultation with teachers.

More information on extra precautions during the course can be found here.

Studio rentals

The studio rent is being resumed as before covid-19.

CREA cafe

The CREA café is fully open again! As of 18 February, the café is back to its regular opening hours and there are no more fixed seats. The actual opening hours differ at the moment due to staff scheduling issues/quarantine, please call in advance to check if it is open: 020 525 1423.

Performances/events in the theatre and music hall

Events and activities can currently take place as before Covid-19. The venues have a capacity of less than 500 people and therefore the 1G policy does not apply here.

Student offices/Voorfabriek

Student organisations can once again use the Voorfabriek spaces as before. The maximum number of people per room will go back to the regular maximum from 18 February.

We hope to see you again soon at CREA!
