Jubilee 25 years of Dooyewaard Stipendium!
The Dooyewaard Foundation
The Dooyewaard Foundation came into being in 1995 with the release of the estate of two Blaricum painters, brothers Jacob and Willem Dooyewaard. The foundation had been set up earlier, in 1981, by the brothers themselves. It was their expressed wish that their estate would be used to acquire and maintain artists’ studios and adjacent living quarters in order to retain and extend one of Blaricum’s characteristics as a village of artists.
The foundation now owns five different studios and in accordance with the bylaws aims to create working- and meeting spaces for artists in order to contribute to the Dutch art world and to stimulate the art climate in general.
