Daan contributes to the cultural events at Ruigoord and is actively involved in anything that grows and blooms, annually planting trees and other greenery. As DJ Astronuts he is also a resident at the Trance Orient Express parties in the church.

What does it mean to you to have a studio on Ruigoord? And for your work?

‘For me, my studio has a living room function, where I can relax after working in and around the church. I share my studio with friends and family who are active as musicians, theatre makers, bon vivants and participants of the organisation.’
