Stichting Festival Aangeschoten Wild
The foundation Stichting Festival Aangeschoten Wild was founded July 11th, 2012, as successor to the association Festivalvereniging Aangeschoten Wild, which was founded in March 2010 and subsequently disbanded in 2013. Board members are not renumerated for their work. The goals listed under its statutes clearly show what the organisation is working towards:
- organising the yearly recurring event ‘Festival Aangeschoten Wild’;
- connecting young people with a varied programme of cultural performances, including among others music, theatre and dance performances;
- giving an opportunity to aspiring talent to do performances;
- encourage integration and connections between young people.
These goals are contained within our mission:
Festival Aangeschoten Wild aims to introduce their visitors to new and inspiring talents and to forms of art they’re less familiar with and inspire them to continue that discovery, in a warm, open and positive atmosphere.
Besides coaching the yearly committee, as a board we are – and have been from 2016 – working towards realising growth, in both size and quality. We strive to grow as an organisation, by forging new cooperations, but just as much as an event. We want to challenge people to not only remain in the confines of our largest music podium, but to also take a look around the corner, to see what’s going on there. That way, we hope to be able to surprise more people – even if for just one day. And if we allow ourselves to dream, we hope to stimulate and nurture a cultural passion that allows people to continue to explore, discover and be amazed.
