Pioneers of Change – Dutch Design Festival New York
Pioneers of Change is a festival of Dutch design, fashion and architecture on New York’s Governors Island. The event is conceived and curated by Renny Ramakers, co-founder and director of Droog, as part of the ny400 week celebrations, commemorating the 400th anniversary of the arrival of the Dutch to New York. The festival highlights a more responsible and sustainable approach to living by celebrating the blurring of low- and high-brow, establishing new collaborations, encouraging involvement, emphasizing sustainability and valuing handcraft and the local context. Over the course of two long weekends from September 11 through September 20, pioneers of change will showcase a modern interpretation on Dutch art and design. The exhibit will utilize several former officers’ houses in Nolan Park on Governors Island, where visitors can enjoy the festival.
