Fonds 21 again main patron of Holland Festival

February 13, 2024

The Holland Festival is proud that Fonds 21 has once again committed itself to the festival as a main patron. Fonds 21 supports both art projects that aim to reach a broad, new and preferably younger audience and initiatives that improve the social opportunities of young people. This aligns well with Holland Festival's mission to continually reach new audiences with innovative and experimental programming.

Emily Ansenk, director Holland Festival: 'The long-standing cooperation between Fonds 21 and the Holland Festival ensures that performing arts by known and unknown artists from all over the world become accessible to a large audience. With the support of Fonds 21 we reach a wide audience and engage young and new audiences across the full breadth of the festival. Our diverse programming connects visitors to topics at play in today's world, and to each other.'

Henk Christophersen, director Fonds 21: "As Fonds 21, we are delighted to commit to the upcoming edition of the Holland Festival. The festival presents top current performances and actively seeks opportunities to also make them accessible to younger and multi-voice audiences. The focus on reaching new audiences, including the appointment of a junior programmer, fits perfectly with the objectives of Fonds 21.' 

The Holland Festival looks forward to the collaboration and to the 77th edition of the festival.
