Opening 11fountains

On Friday May 18 it’s ‘Kletterdei’ in Friesland! That’s when the 11 fountains will spring into action one by one at the hands of eleven acclaimed international artists. Big screens have been set up in each of the eleven Frisian cities, where the public can watch the opening while seated at festive tables.
You are most welcome to join a table in Leeuwarden, Sneek, IJlst, Sloten, Stavoren, Hindeloopen, Workum, Bolsward, Harlingen, Franeker or Dokkum!

Program in each city:

  • 15:30 Come take a seat with the local citizenry
  • 16:00 Start of the opening program
  • 17:15 Ms Ingrid van Engelshoven, Minister of Culture, will speak in Bolsward
  • ± 18:00 End of program (may be longer in Bolsward)

‘Kletterdei’ is Frisian for a beautiful spring day with fountains. 

The opening will be broadcasted live between 16:00 and 17:00 on Omrop Fryslân TV and will be streamed online.
