Based on our general vision and specific mission, we continue to continually strive for social and cultural diversity, participation and blending of worlds. We do this by collaborating with elementary schools, adopting an accessible pricing policy, partnering with a variety of social-societal organizations, integrating performances by the non-Western musicians from the Atlas Ensemble with the Family Zone and with participation programs aimed at individuals and families in disadvantaged positions, with or without a migration background. A performance by the Unlimited Ensemble in which mentally disabled and professional musicians play together also contributes to this.
With the structural appointment of Marieke Jissink as employee participation in 2022, Oranjewoud Festival shows ambition to develop the festival into a place where everyone can feel at home and connect with others in a casual way. The festival is building an enthusiastic and solid network in the social domain.
