Stichting Wildermoed was established in 2019 by its artistic director, Stefanie Janssen. Her foundation supports contemporary art and culture and is committed to realizing high-quality music theatre productions and other distinctive artistic projects. Undine is the first project supported by Stichting Wildermoed.
Wildermoed wants to gain a firm foothold as a platform where talented starting young artists and established art professionals can get help with their artistic work. Wildermoed stimulates them to make new connections with other art disciplines and look for inspiration outside their regular practice. In this regard, Wildermoed is already working with various cultural platforms.
Talent development, artistic productions, education and encounters
Besides talent development, the foundation wants to contribute to education by giving workshops and guest lectures and to gain national and international prestige by developing new productions. The foundation also aims to make a broad public more familiar with contemporary art and culture. It wants to bring Dutch and international audiences together for each project in order to exchange cultural information, with encounters also taking place between the artists and the public.
