About us

The Electors creates impactful productions to activate young people on social issues such as the future of Europe, the climate crisis and Dutch democracy. Through political theater shows (including in Paradiso and the Kleine Komedie), podcasts, and campaigns, we engage a wide and young audience on pressing social issues.
