Bosch Parade is a worldwide unique art manifestation on water with Hieronymus Bosch (1450-1516) as source of inspiration. His world-famous works of art are full of symbolism, fantasies and absurdities that continue to provoke new contemporary creations. Although many projects result in independent artworks, the diverse communities of the city are actively involved in the production of the artworks, also ex offenders and people who suffer from addictions.
Bosch Parade is unique in the world in its concept and appearance. It is an event that can be visited free of charge. Bosch Parade is a multidisciplinary performance in the form of a floating parade. Several large and small works of art sail over the water of the river Dommel in the heart of ‘s-Hertogenbosch.
