Every June, since 2010, the waters of ’s-Hertogenbosch (the Netherlands) provide the venue for the Bosch Parade, a wondrous armada of vessels and objects inspired by the work and ideas of Medieval painter Jheronimus Bosch. Artists from all disciplines (art, theatre, dance, music, architecture) collaborate with groups of enthusiastic amateurs and volunteers to create this artistic, water-borne parade, which runs for three days every June. This spawns not only a creative floating parade by and for the city, but also an extensive creativity network throughout the city. Check out the video of some of this year’s entries:
About Michael Farver
Ex-print media publisher & art/design guru turned passionate social activist; semi-pro chef, writer, photographer, artist, trained handler of championship Dobermans and licensed firearms expert. I split up the hours of my day serving as a spokesperson and advocate for U.S. childhood hunger solutions, as a Dad, as a Husband, and when things get too intense, I travel the country following the latest reincarnation of the Black Crowes. I'm the Immediate Past President of the Board of Florida Impact, the state’s senior legislative public policy advocacy organization, serve on the board of directors of the South Florida Hunger Coalition and Women in Distress of Broward County, am a Trustee and Director of the Farver Foundation, direct a grassroots child hunger nonprofit in South Florida and also lead XS Media Ventures, a multi-media event, promotion, business incubator, new business startup and redevelopment consulting company. I'm into everything from modern art, tiki and pop surrealism to wine collecting to vintage guitars to all things touching, and touched by, technology. For starters.
