Team We Are Public

We work day and night towards our one and only goal: to discover innovative and adventurous culture with an increasing number of We Are Public members.

We Are Public was founded in 2014 by two cultural entrepreneurs named Bas Morsch and Leon Caren. Currently the organisation houses about 20 employees and freelancers with whom we work towards a solid programme, our marketing and communications and an always welcoming customer service. We run our operations from our headquarters at De School in Amsterdam, and from various smaller locations in cities we are also operating in.
