Jane'a Johnson has stepped away from Foam. As artistic director, Jane'a led the artistic Vision for Foam during a challenging time, partly caused by the extended closing of Foam due to Covid-19 restrictions. Jane’a worked with vigor during the pandemic to strengthen transparency at Foam and maintain Foam’s position as an ethical leader in the cultural sector for the next generation. She brought fresh energy and a renewed Vision for Foam. She dedicated herself to creating a Foam for, and of, everyone.
During her tenure, which focused on education and accessibility, she reorganized three of Foam's artistic departments into Photography, Public Practice, and Talent. She also actively promoted Foam, and worked on relationships with strategic partners that expanded Foam's footprint locally and internationally.
Jane'a will be pursuing other opportunities in the arts and culture sector. We wish her the best of luck in her future endeavors and thank her for her service.
The board will soon start recruitment for a new artistic director. In the meantime, Karin van Gilst, together with the entire team, will continue managing Foam on a day-to-day basis as interim general director.
Foam is supported by the VriendenLoterij, Foam Members, De Brauw Blackstone Westbroek, the VandenEnde Foundation and the Gemeente Amsterdam.
In 2022 Foam receives additional support from the Mondriaan Fund and receives a contribution through the Mondriaan Fund from the Ministerie van OCW.
