LiveART Foundation

Established in Amsterdam in September 2022, the Foundation’s initial goal was to operate as a legal entity for the acquisition of music- and image rights for Maryleen Schiltkamp’s ongoing artistic projects. Subsequently, this became part of an overarching vision which secures the  entirety of Schiltkamp’s artworks as a legacy within the Foundation.

The LiveART Foundation aims to promote artistic projects in the sector of multi-disciplinary art forms, specifically collaborations between art and music, with live performance as an interactive art form. Examples are: exhibitions, light installations, image projections and live music-painting performances during a concert as performance art, and music videos and documentary films.

The LiveART Foundation stands for innovation, ground-breaking projects, support of emerging artists, and the promotion of young talent. Furthermore, the foundation supports the performance, documentation and publication of Curaçaon classical music, one of the unique musical niches belonging to Dutch cultural heritage and connecting Maryleen to her native island.
