Eva Slierendrecht is born in Rotterdam and raised in Zeeland, at the Dutch seaside. She was a very active and happy kid, and she still is! After she graduated as Art/ Music Manager at the Utrecht School of the Arts in 2010 at the age of 20, she wanted to learn more, about connecting with people. So she started her journalism study. But only for half a year, the study was not what she expected, so she left for India. There she discovered her calling: creating artistic programs for events and festivals, together with all the amazing artists she already knew. She founded entertainment company Vitamine Blij, (meaning: Vitamin Happy) that she started in 2011 at age 21. The mission: sharing ideas with other creatives and to create things with them to make other people happy or inspire them to be more open, creative, grateful, spiritual, sporty, or any other positive thing you can imagine 😉
Vitamine Blij is now one of the biggest companies in The Netherlands for festival entertainment. So for 4 years, she has been making hoops for hoop jams on events. Like hoop jams every Sunday for 6 months at Thuishaven, Amsterdam. Throughout the years she has booked many hoopers and other flow art performers in NL.
In 2016 she started hooping herself, and she got hooked immediately after buying a LEDhoop and hooping all week at Sziget Festival in 2016.
She now is heavily in love with hooping and everything related to it, thanks to all the joy and positive changes it brought her! She wants to share it with the whole world, and also share her enthusiasm with you if you like, feel free to contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org 🙂
