OT301 used to be a squat in the Dutch city of Amsterdam, located on Overtoom 301. Eerste Hulp Bij Kunst (EHBK), a non-profit that funds cultural initiatives, bought the building in 2006 which is used as a multi-media alternative cultural centre. The building is an old film academy and was squatted in 1999 by a group of artists. It is used in a range of ways, including as a venue for music and films, a non-profit print shop, artists workspace and an 'organic cultural kitchen' (a vegan restaurant) called De Peper. Formerly, it housed the offices of European Youth For Action and Green Pepper magazine. OT301 received the Amsterdamprijs voor de Kunsten (Amsterdam Prize for the Arts) from the Amsterdam Fonds voor de Kunst on 23 August 2007 from Amsterdam Mayor Job Cohen.
