A world without ketters
is a world without questions

Board composition

KETTER&Co is a collective of makers and thinkers that strives for a sustainable society by asking the relevant questions.


Through embedded research, KETTER&Co focuses on local agendas, practices, stories and materials, and emphasises the importance of involving future generations.


We – an artist, designers, an anthropologist and cultural historian – are and work together with thinkers, strategists and makers. We do research and fieldwork, connect and teach, and are deeply committed to system change.

KETTER&Co originated with Irene Fortuyn's artistic practice.



We do so by developing projects and methodologies that bring about sustainable change through the inclusion of other perspectives. With our projects, we aim to inspire others to discover and experience alternatives to existing practices. 
Our starting point is always the local context with specific attention to social, societal and natural ecosystem.


KETTER&Co strives to ensure that care and maintenance of our shared (social) space and everything that consists of it prevails in society. Care and maintenance as an integral part of innovation.



At least as important is the contribution of the Cos. This is the collection of people, institutes, organizations, municipalities, etc. that help us realize projects and that support us. A world without Ketters is a world without questions and together with our Cos we search for answers.
