Art foundation in Oisterwijk
In 2017 the 1st edition of Art in Oisterwijk took place. This attracted more than 150,000 visitors in a period of 2.5 weeks. The positive feedback from visitors, press, residents and many entrepreneurs in the immediate vicinity has enthused the Art in Oisterwijk Foundation to further develop the art festival into a biennial event. Unfortunately there was corona. This year we are back, better than ever.
The Art in Oisterwijk foundation was established in Oisterwijk in 2016 at the initiative of landscape architect Bert Huls. The foundation has an active day-to-day management consisting of:
- drs. A.L.M. Nelissen – chairman
- mr. E.P.G. Kamps – secretary
- F.J. Tabbers – treasurer
- H.A.M.G. van Laarhoven – general board member
- F. Eerhart – general board member
As festival director, Bert Huls is responsible for the realization of the festival.
