The Projectruimte Hoofdstraat 17 in Beetsterzwaag is a exhibition space and international culture platform.
The stately block-shaped building at the centre of Beetsterzwaag was erected in 1837 as 'Grietenij van Opsterland'. A 'grietman' was then the name for mayor. A 'Grietenij' was a forerunner of the current Dutch municipality in Friesland. After 1851, with the introduction of the municipal law, the building was used as a town hall.
Nowadays, a fresh wind blows at the former 'Grietenij': art and culture have now taken the place of law and administration.
The exhibitions at the Projectruimte Hoofdstraat 17 are known for their versatility, with attention for painting, sculpture, ánd other art forms.
