cultural pioneers



On a former flower bulb farm in the unique surroundings of the Noordoostpolder and within walking distance of the IJsselmeer (lake), id11 offers artists, writers, musicians and other creators space and time for their own work. An area of new land extracted from the sea and devised on the drawing table.

The farmhouse is now the living and working place of visual artist Rolina Nell and cultural initiator Paul Giesen, who in addition to their own (art) practice realise projects, presentations and an artist-in-residence program.

The Noordoostpolder is prominently an area for creators. An area where they can focus and concentrate on their work or on a project, with not much interference and temptations of any kind.

Being part of a small group of cultural pioneers in the Noordoostpolder, including locationtheatergroup Prins te Paard and Studio Makkink & Bey and with the focus on a conscious attitude, including organic and vegetarian products from our own garden or Eko-farm De Eerste and Ecoshop Helder. For catering, uses the services of Studio TeGast.
