About us

Damondi Works is a Netherlands-based boutique production house founded by Maryam Tarami.

Projects are both for the Dutch and international market. The tendency is towards international collaborations with more impact. 


Damondi Works is driven by a critical reflection on society. We are concerned with important issues of our time. Damondi Works contributes to more diversity, inclusion and internationalization in the sector. Improving employment opportunities for youth in the arts and culture sector is one of our current focus areas. Organizing eco-friendly and sustainable projects is another interest. The latter means that we take actions to contribute to sustainable development goals (the SDGs). Currently we use shorts to discover talents and build long-lasting collaborations.
