Wednesday 17 June | Experience Holland Festival and Oerol virtually

June traditionally is the month in which several big arts and culture festivals kick off the festival season. Two of the leading festivals are international performing arts festival Holland Festival (11-21 June) and arts, science and nature festival Oerol (15-19 June). Because of the corona measures, these too cannot take place in their original form. However, both festivals come up with a programme entirely online in which you can discover, experience, participate and be simply swept away by arts. Do you want to be part of these new online arts communities and experiences? Check out the links below!

Oerol | Imagine Your Island

Friday the 12th of June the warm-up started, from Monday the 15th of June the programme went live for five consecutive days. Together with the creators, an up-to-date programme has been put together that largely takes place virtually. Wherever you are: you will experience the island, as always, through the eyes of the creators, and the island feeling will never be far away! For Oerol you can donate and you’ll receive a fan wristband. This way you support the festival and its performers now and next year.

Holland Festival | Programme 2.0-2.0

Every year this festival presents groundbreaking performances from artists around the world and new developments in the performing arts. Due to corona measures, Holland Festival presents an online programme that reflects the original programme from 11 till 21 June. Together with the international artists who were going to perform this year an online alternative has been developed.¬†Every day between 11 and 21 June you can visit the website for streamings, video’s, podcasts, writings and image material by the artists in question.¬†Here too you can donate to support the festival.

Studium Generale created a Corona Care Package to make #StayingIn as pleasant as possible. In the following weeks we will share videos, blogs, articles and podcasts within four focus areas: Mental Health, The World After Corona, Arts & Culture and other online events.
