    Pieter Zeeman is to retire from his position as Dutch Performing Arts' programme director at the end of July.
    Pieter Zeeman joined the Performing Arts Fund NL twenty years ago. He has been programme director of the Fund's international promotion programme Dutch Performing Arts since 2014. During his tenure, he spearheaded the programme's activities to promote Dutch music, theatre and dance on the international stage.

    Announcing his retirement, Zeeman said: "It is with much pride that I look back on the work we have achieved with a small but highly dedicated team, tasked with the promotion of Dutch performing arts on the international stage. I'm grateful to have been able to contribute to many international partnerships with all types of organisations, large and small, from a wide range of disciplines. Even though I retire from my position at the Performing Arts Fund NL, I will stay active in the arts sector in some way, shape or form."

    Pieter Zeeman's successor is Aad Hogervorst, who will act as interim programme director as of August 2019. Hogervorst currently works as supply and demand project manager at the Performing Arts Fund NL, as part of a secondment from the Ministry of Education, Culture and Science. Hogervorst has worked as cultural diplomat at the Dutch embassy in Madrid for five years. He was also deputy director of the arts department of the Ministry of Culture.

    Pieter Zeeman will be stepping down from his role as programme director at the end of July.
