Do you want to support artistic creations? Do you want to be personally involved in the festival? Become a Friend of the Kunstenfestivaldesarts and you can contribute to the production of a new and daring project.

Friends of the Kunstenfestivaldesarts

Artistic creation is central to the mission of the Kunstenfestivaldesarts. Most of the works in the festival programme are now seeing the light and are being co-produced by the festival. Every year, the Friends of the Kunstenfestivaldesarts support the creation of a new production. They gather to assess the programme and are given a look at the festival’s organisation from behind the scenes.
