Young Collectors Festival

On Saturday, October 9, the third edition of the Young Collectors Circle festival will take place, with the theme: Art is for everyone! Discover artworks from Utrecht's collections together with other art lovers: how did these collections come about and what is still on the wish list? Collectors and museums will open the doors to their collections for you. In addition, masterclasses and studio visits will teach you everything you need to know about looking at and buying art. More information and routes will be announced soon! And save the date: the first Young Collectors Festival in Amsterdam will take place between November 11 and 14, from our own festival HQ in the midst of the lively Jordaan gallery scene.

Young Collectors Festival

The Young Collectors Circle Festival is spread over four times during the year, with a different focus chosen for each event. The editions each last one day and are spread over various locations within Utrecht. With a wide range of lectures, artist talks, exhibitions, studio and collection visits, we show you the art world in a new way.

Upcoming dates and themes in 2021 are:

  • October 9: Art is for Everyone
  • December 11: Shaping the future

Did you have to miss the first (Fresh Talent) and/or second edition (Art is Everywhere) of the festival? We made online studio visits to Satijn Panyigay, Jaya Pelupessy, Caz Egelie, Cecilia Rebergen and Eva Spierenburg, especially for those that stayed at home. You can find them on our Instagram- and Youtube-channel.
