2023, The year that “Ezels en Kwasten” returns to Wijk aan Zee. (Ezels en Kwasten = Easels and Brushes) For 10 days artists from all over Europe will gather together in the small coastal town and work together (but individually) with the intention to produce a work of art within 9 days. This Art Festival ends with a collective exhibition on Saturday Juni 10th and a public auction of all the work produced during the festival on June 11th. 

There will be different works shops for the artists to participate in, joined meals and working in the company of like minded people is experienced by the participants as very inspiring.
