Marije Boonstra & Aranka Dijkstra
NHL Stenden hogeschool
Aranka Dijkstra and Marije Boonstra together wrote the Festival Experimentation Guide: a practical guide for sustainable innovators on designing festival experiments. Aranka has been experimenting at festivals since 2014. She has guided many students and entrepreneurs in designing and executing their project or experiment at different festivals, among others Welcome to the Village. Marije has experienced festivals from different perspectives: from musician, organiser, volunteer, visitor to researcher. Since 2016 she works as a researcher and teacher at NHL Stenden university and in that experience she has guided many design students in setting up their experiment. Together, Aranka and Marije have joined forces within the Open Innovation Professorship and the European Interreg North Sea Region project Inno-Quarter to create this practical guide!
