The Pool is an online platform that allows a new generation of artists to connect with each other and with art professionals. Artists can share their professional practice and exchange experiences on the platform.
The Pool is also the place to explore possible collaborations and connect with like-minded artists. For art professionals, it is the online community to scout and engage with new talents.

In 2023, This Art Foundation will also give a physical stage to artists who graduated during the corona pandemic. For them we are organising the one-off Springboard Art Fair from 8 to 11 June 2023 in the Werkspoorkathedraal in Utrecht.
The participants are selected and supervised by 25 coaches, who are experienced art professionals – curators, renowned artists and gallery owners. With these coaches, artists themselves determine what their exhibition presentation will look like. Springboard will therefore not be a conventional art fair, but a dynamic exhibition. In addition, all participants of Springboard receive a fee to cover (part of) their expenses.
The fair is linked to The Pool. Every artist presenting their practice at The Pool can be selected for the Springboard Art Fair. Coaches select a group of artists from the profiles on The Pool.
