DEAR INTERNATIONAL FRIENDS AND FANCIERS OF THE ARTS,
This Gofundme page is to give my international friends and followers the opportunity to support me as well (Tikkie is limited to NL).
Please transfer your kind donation. Many thanks in advance, and so very appreciated!
FRIDAY I performed my work 'INTERVENING SPACE: Reframing Conventions (2013) during Corona/Quarantine (2020)' at Hotel Maria Kapel - HMK. THE 8-HOUR LIVE STREAM VIDEO IS NOW AVAILABLE FOR YOU TO WATCH FOR FREE ON MY WEBSITE: homepage .
FRIDAY was also Labour Day, which created another layer within the relevance and importance of my (performance) work. It makes me realize even more that I am exhibiting this entirely for free these days, because other options are slim to none during these times (and most likely the rest of 2020). Us artists are investing everything possible to keep on going and to be able to continue with what we love to do most.
Nevertheless, I would like to highlight the fact that the arts and the artists are struggling more than ever! I am trying my utmost best to put even more effort and energy into my art, as this is me; my being, my soul, my narratives, my vulnerabilities, my feelings, my body, my spirit, my brain, my thoughts; my biggest passion, my work, my labour; it's all in there!
I can no longer disguise my financial struggles, and I would therefore like to ask for your support. Support the arts, support your local artist.
Warm virtual hugs,
* I am not by any means striving towards a certain amount, but without that goal you can't set up the page. Any kind donations are highly appreciated!
