Vijfhuizen, July 21
Kunstfort bij Vijfhuizen is pleased that Sharon Gesthuizen will join the organization as business leader from 1 August.
Sharon is a versatile and committed alumnus of ArtEZ University of Arts (Arnhem, Fine Art). She spent more than 10 years in the House of Representatives and is currently working as entrepreneur and supervisor – amongst others at Stroom, The Hague, and HKU University of the Arts, Utrecht. Together with Zippora Elders, who joined as artistic director in July 2016 and has been executive director since 2018, she will be responsible for the further development and implementation of Kunstfort’s business policy.
Sharon: ‘I’m very enthusiastic to start working at the Kunstfort! Here I can combine my eagerness to structure the organization efficiently and clearly for everyone, with my great love for art. The surroundings and the Kunstfort itself are very inspiring, and I’m looking forward to a great collaboration with the team.’
The Kunstfort is a unique art institution for heritage, visual art and design in the Amsterdam metropolitan region. International discourse, natural environment and local distinction reinforce each other in fruitful synergy. With this energetic addition to an already solid team, the organization will be able to continue to flourish and to increase its idiosyncratic contribution within the field.
