Since the John Adams Institute was founded in 1987, we have welcomed a broad range of great minds to Amsterdam. From 2010 to 2013 the VPRO filmed all our events. Since September 2013, our lectures are filmed by Parmando 24Culture, where you will find full-length videos of our most recent events.

Since 2019, audio recordings of our events are streamed by TXTRadio.
