Once again, YiPArt photo auctioning is a great success!
13 October 2017
On Saturday 7 October 2017 the biennial YiPArt Photo auction took place for the eighth time in Paradiso Noord. In total, the auction raised € 92,540!
In recent years, the YiPArt Photo Auction has become the largest photo auction in the Netherlands. It is a special opportunity for art lovers to purchase a work of art and at the same time to contribute to the positive reintegration of ex-detainees worldwide. With this wonderful contribution, YiP can continue the creative projects for young people in youth prisons worldwide.
Auctioneer Jop Ubbens effortlessly transformed the concert hall into an exciting auction room. The huge 3 by 2 metres portrait of Queen Máxima, photographed by Koos Breukel, was the most expensive work of the day, followed by Kingi Indigenous & Kingi Krant by Patricia Steur.
15 years YiP
After the auction, the 15th anniversary of Young in Prison took place. Visitors could visit a retrospective exhibition of 15 years of Young in Prison, follow workshops and enjoy the performances of various bands.Creativity liberates!
Creativity is not a goal for Young in Prison, but a means for young people to get closer to themselves and discover their talents. Over the past 15 years YiP has worked in six different countries and with its creative programs helped thousands of (ex-) detained young people.
