In this podcast, artist and former VHDG resident Bart Eysink Smeets engages in conversations with artists who are staying in the VHDG Lokaal and are working on an art project in Friesland. Together, they delve into aspects such as the artist’s artistic research, how the project relates to the local context, and the best sandwich in Leeuwarden.

Kunstinitiatief VHDG is an extraordinary platform with a focus on experimentation, contemporary art, and talent development. In our projects, artists offer a fresh perspective on current themes by examining the local environment and its history. What do local stories tell us about the world we live in today? At VHDG, we are curious, activist, and innovative.
