In 2005, Jeroen Everaert established Mothership. His motive was, and still is, ‘to have more people enjoy art’. Jeroen’s biggest mission is to make art a substantial part of the society. ‘Everybody should see that art matters. Art is for everyone’.
Jeroen started with selling steps and ladders, but grew to be the director of a building crane business. In the evening he studied at art school, resulting in a life as an artist. After a year he had an exhibition at Showroom MAMA in the Witte de Withstraat in Rotterdam. He stuck around and got to know the world of arts. However, Jeroen missed business and left MAMA after a while to start his own company as an art producer: Mothership.
Jeroen’s vision on art and society makes him a much sought-after speaker for conferences and presentations.
Like no other, Jeroen knows which artist should be brought in for which project. In 2008 he received the Ketelbinkie award and in 2014 he was awarded the Laurenspenning for his enthusiasm, his business acumen and creativity with which he manages to bring together clients and artists.
