« charity Sonsbeek 2016 - Raisung funds for Foundation Masarang

In my installation "The Exchange" I managed to raise over 8000 euro's for the great nature-conservation-project called Masarang in Borneo and Sulawesi.
Set up in the beginning of the nineties by the Dutch founder Willie Smith. Masarang is replanting destroyed rainforest, finding alternative farming methods to protect forest and rescueing Uran-Utangs and re-introducing them into the wild.
Visitors of the installation where able to buy packages of the new currency "Square", they could buy postcards and where able to donate money inside my installation during the summer-months.

On Saturday the 17th. of September 2016 Willie Smits came to Arnhem to receive the check with the final amount.
Afterwards he gave an inspiring lecture at the visitorscenter of Park Sonsbeek.
