New York Journal:  The New Island Festival on Governors Island in New York ended on Sunday evening with a visit from Prime Minister Balkenende. The organizers and artists can look back on a successful, well-attended festival, especially the second weekend. It was a fine mix of Parade and Oerol performances on the magnificent island, a stone’s throw from Manhattan. And the wind nomads were there too. The public were pleasantly surprised by the colourful installation of paintings and the reactions were extremely positive. The performances by other Parade and Oerol artists, including the cow, among the wind nomads were a great success. And painting with the children from Brooklyn was a fine addition. Once again, it was quite a job to pack everything into the container but pulling the installation down went well and the wind nomads will arrive back in Holland around October 10. We look back upon a successful festival and Balkenende promised to hang the poster we offered him, the photo taken from a helicopter with the wind nomads forming NY-NL, in an excellent place.

2006 “Cought light”.
Famous Dutch stay over at the ” Flark”.
A nature -and protest campagne – project on the Naarder lake.
”Terwijl Johan Jorritsma mijmert over de schoonheid van het Naardermeer vangt kunstenaar Barbara Houwers uur na uur de schoonheid van het licht van het Naardermeer” .
Natuurmonumenten neemt maandag de boot uit de vaart waarop veel bekende Nederlanders dit jaar campagne hebben gevoerd tegen de aanleg van een ondertunnelde snelweg langs het Naardermeer. De blijdschap bij de organisatie was groot toen enkele weken geleden bleek dat een meerderheid in de Tweede Kamer de weg niet meer ziet zitten. Nu is het kabinet aan zet. ,,Het is belangrijk dat het kabinet een besluit neemt. Dan is het echt zeker”, stelt Gradus Lemmen, de beheerder van het gebied voor Natuurmonumenten.
