The Media Art Friesland Foundation presents contemporary art to a broad and diverse audience in Leeuwarden. The main activity of the foundation is the yearly Media Art Festival (MAF). Our primary focus is on talent development and the presentation of national and international upcoming talents. We offer a creative space to experiment and offer exposure to artists and look for new collaborations with institutional partners.

Since 2016, we’ve expanded our line of work to the public space with the LUNA Leeuwarden Urban Night Adventure. We present light, sound- and performance art of artists from the region and of prominent international artists in numerous places in the beautiful city centre of Leeuwarden, reaching a very large and diverse audience.

Besides these large events we are present throughout the year with smaller initiatives, workshops and collaboration projects, also at international locations. Cultural institutions, companies and artists regularly call on our expertise for advice and concept development. We are happy to assist regional artists in finding international partners and many organisations and European initiatives know to find us as a collaborative partner.
