Bridge to Liberation Experience
Since 2014 there is an initiative for the biggest multimedial public commemoration for the Battle of Arnhem; Bridge to Liberation Experience.
After the official commemoration of the Battle of Arnhem marks Bridge to Liberation Experience the moment through standing still by the past and taking this to the present and the future.
Foundation Bridge to Liberation has set up a goal for itself in a new way; by using different art forms with a wide audience standing still for the Battle of Arnhem to make the impact of the war in the city, then and now, visible and tangible so it brings people closer to each other.
With the past five editions Bridge to Liberation has reached thousands of people. Also, in 2019 the Bridge to Liberation will be back. An Experience for young and old where in a unique way the battle of Arnhem in 1944 will be commemorated. By means of dance, music, film, special effects and acts of famous Dutch artists, the stories come to life. And emotions will affect all generations of all kind of people in different moments.
This results in a moment of experiencing and commemorate together. Commemorate is more than thinking about and remembering. Commemorate has to do with the past, present and future. Commemorate is bringing the past back in the present in a way that it gets a place in our lives now.
