DUTCH TRAVEL ART

Dutch Travel ART is an initiative of Mirjam Voets (visual artist), Kitty Weber (visual designer) and Simone Spakman (event manager). The aim of DutchTravelART is to present itself as a travelling, professional group of artists from various disciplines to the general public at a beautiful location in Noord-Holland every year.

Now that public events can be organised again, we are going to make an inventory of which festivals in Noord-Holland we can join in the summer of 2023. We will kick off on Sunday 12 June 2022 with a pilot of our own small-scale event at the Hembrugterrein in Zaandam.

NEW – CREATIVE WORKSHOPS
Dutch Travel ART organises creative workshops again in autumn 2022 in the Art Gallery (Kunstgenieloods) of Fort aan den Ham in Uitgeest and the Museum of Humanity in Zaandam. Unfortunately, due to Corona, we had to postpone this new initiative, but now we are really getting started. Keep an eye on the website for the new dates!

The creative workshops will be organised at a different and impressive heritage location. With your own group of friends or colleagues (8-12 participants), you will have the opportunity to get acquainted with painting, modelling or another discipline with a theme tailored to the location. And for inspiration an introductory lecture is given about the heritage location and the matching theme.

Please contact me for more information. Also ask for the options for a tailor-made programme for your own group!
