The official launching ceremony of Van Gogh NP i.o. took place at Out Herlaer. Out Herlaer is also being realized there by Brabants Landschap and Het Noordbrabants Museum. Ina Adema and Yvo Kortmann symbolically opened the door to Van Gogh NP i.o. and the partners concluded their multi-year collaboration with a joint message. This marked the unique character of the Brabant movement Van Gogh NP i.o. , a testing ground without fences that starts at the front door of all Brabanders in the area. The integrated approach is aimed at strengthening top nature and developing valuable, vital landscape with greenery right into the heart of villages and towns.
Commissioner of the King Adema, during the opening ceremony, expressed her appreciation for the fact that the Brabant partners, based on their substantive expertise, are connecting with innovation, art and design, thus contributing to an attractive business climate, sustainable tourism and perspective for agriculture. "The Van Gogh National Park is an idiosyncratic, very Brabant, bringing together art and culture in a landscape where it is possible to literally follow in Vincent's footsteps. Finding a balance between economic interests, nature and landscape. Just a bit different than usual, seeking opportunities and innovation."Read the press release
