Protestantse kerk Tytsjerk
IN CONTACT WITH
In 2018, Tytsjerk opens its doors for unknown visitors who will leave an indelible impression in and together with the village. The International ArtCamp Tytsjerk will house 25 artists from all over Europe from 23 July to 6 August. The artists of various disciplines will stay with hospitable residents.
The people of Tytsjerk were also hospitable during World War II, when 170 Roman refugees from Tiel came to the Frisian village. They brought a different language and a different belief. They were gathered in the church and, from there, they were sent on to villagers who opened their homes. These war stories, also already part of the successful theatrical walk It Paad nei Frijheid in 2017, are a source of inspiration.
The ArtCamp elaborates on the role of the church during the war years. Only now, the foreigners gather together in freedom in the Protestant Church, where they are working on a joint final show with and through the village.
