NO MORE SUBSIDIES FROM PROVINCE AND MUNICIPALITY
In the future Lustwarande would very much like to keep making exhibitions in De Oude Warande. But the province and municipality decided last June not to grant us any more subsidies. Without their support, Lustwarande will cease to exist after 20 years. Fortunately, early September, the Mondriaan Fund granted Lustwarande a substantial subsidy for the next two years. Upon this grant, the municipality followed at the end of October, also for two years. That province may follow their example soon. Because LUSTWARANDE MUST STAY!

We have mobilized our international network to send us a letter of support. Even during summer, when practically everybody was off work, we received an overwhelming amount of letters. Below we have posted some quotes from these letters.

You can download the complete letters below.

We expect to inform you about the progress in the first half of Dembember.
