WHO ARE WE
Passionate individuals, working as one
We Arnhem was born as a platform to promote the city's creativity.
Seeking collaborations between local artists has made possible to unite dance, fashion, music and theater.
We believe that despite different art forms and individual views there's common ground where we all can have fun, learn and connect with each other.
As the initiative was born from two dancers (Jurriën Schobben and Alberto Villanueva), and since Introdans is one of the biggest motors and ambassadors of the city, dance became the main channelling force of the project.
OUR CORE TEAM
Alberto Villanueva and Jurriën Schobben, directors and choreographers.

Zyanya Keizer, her collections express fantasy and ethereal beauty. Her collections have already been shown in the Mercedes-Benz FashionWeek Amsterdam and are also well received in the Spanish fashion world.
Keizer favors a timeless aesthetic and appreciates both nostalgia and a surreal vision of the future. A recurring source of inspiration is nature and the effortless yet intricate beauty it radiates. She investigates the dark aspects of nature and our relationship with the natural world, combining hard with soft structures. Keizer experiments by exploring unconventional materials and silhouettes of the organic shapes of the human body, with heavily embellished and sculptural garments with a couture finish.
