On September 11 our artistic director Joop Mulder will be presenting the ‘Joop Mulder Plak’ for the third time. An incentive prize from Oerol Festival for artists who develop surprising work in the landscape of the Wadden Island Terschelling. Emke Idema, Sofie Doeland and Studio Buiten Werking are the three nominees this year. The award ceremony will take place in Harlingen.

The Joop Mulder Plak was first introduced in 2017 as a tribute to Joop’s role as the founder of Oerol. The prize offers artists and pioneers the opportunity for further development. In 2017, artist duo Hart van Veen and in 2018, Bart van de Woestijne won the Joop Mulder Plak. The winner receives a sum of money based on donations.
