Johan Fieten on

Drenthe as a Source

of Inspiration.

From his home at Elim, Johan overlooks birches, oaktrees and

elderberries. In the foreground there is a pond, where the clouds

pass by. And at a slower pace, the seasons. Often, when the day

has not quite started yet, deer can be seen at the fringe of the

woods. To Johan Fieten this is a meaningful place. On the soil

of Drenthe. Once an area marked by narrow, straight waterways

(wieken) used for transporting the cut peat on small boats

towards bigger ships. Now, during a walk through the woods,

only a few hidden wieke, overgrown by branches, can be

discovered. Fertile soil for Johan, as at this place in Drenthe,

he often gets ideas for new projects.

Inspiration, however, can be found anywhere: during

conversations with people, listening to people. While observing

and looking around. Especially looking, everywhere. Pulling over

the car, even jumping over a ditch, to be able to look. Primarily

looking. Where needed, Johan promotes his province as the

ambassador of 'Proef het ondernemen in Drenthe' (Taste

entrepreneurship in Drenthe).
