No doubt you will have heard and read about it already: in consultation with the exhibitors, the Duikvaker moved to April 2-3 of this year, where, as always, we will be working together with Thalassa will be present (although in a different composition). So the dive party will go on as usual!
As in previous years, we can count on the support of the dear people who make contributions for the benefit of Kehidupan Anda. You will find below an overview of fun and interesting items that will be for sale at the fair.
Artist Yvonne Lagarde is actively painting lucky stones for the fair. Yvonne has been a loyal supporter of Kehidupan Anda for many years.
We are also working hard to keep the donated items from Ping and Little from Dive Inspire to choose from.

These are offered for sale at the fair for € 5.00 of which the proceeds will go entirely to the foundation.
This year we were able to get Petra again to make beautiful crocheted stuffed animals from the underwater world. This was a very hot item among the visitors at the fair in 2020. The stuffed animals will be auctioned off to the highest bidder spread over both fair days.
Especially for the fair, Hans makes very beautiful glass sculptures in the form of pendants. These works of art will also be sold and the proceeds will go to the foundation.
Hans Meijer is a Dutch glass artist with a background as a scientific glassblower. (since 1992). The love of glass art came when his skills reached a level where he could pour his ideas into glass forms.
These glass forms came even more to life when he discovered working with colored glass in 2007 and began to combine the scientific world with the art world of glass. This combination gives the unique style of his work, using different techniques coming from all over the world from Murano to the United States.
Hans works behind a torch with raw materials such as glass tubes and glass rods, as well as silver and gold fumes. Using techniques like implosions and retticellos which gives his work the feeling that you want to look at it up close. His urge to learn new techniques he discovers all over the world and the love for the material constantly drives him forward in finding new possibilities.
