They will be supported partially by the Dutch government, and partially by the Province of Drenthe
The Drents Museum, the De Nieuwe Kolk film theater (both in Assen) and the Atlas Theater in Emmen are all to receive financial support to counteract the consequences of the Coronavirus outbreak, reports the Asser Courant.
The Drents Museum will receive a total of 1 million euros: 500,000 euros from the national government, and half a million euros from the province of Drenthe. This is still subject to confirmation after the summer parliamentary recess.
De Nieuwe Kolk will receive 37,500 euros in emergency support from the government, which will be matched by the College van Burgemeester en Wethouders (College B&W) of the city of Assen. The province is still investigating whether the municipality can receive compensation from the government for this amount.
It is not known what the Atlas Theater in Emmen can claim. The municipality of Emmen was unable to answer this on Wednesday afternoon.
The culture sector has been hit hard by the Coronavirus outbreak, and the Dutch government has made available 300 million Euros in emergency support for this sector. A total of 48.5 million Euros of this is intended for regional cultural infrastructure.
