Creating stories of quality where creativity, self-development and fun are paramount. This reduces loneliness and increases the social skills of everyone who comes into contact with it.
Introducing everyone in Friesland to the power of storytelling and roleplaying games.
This is what we do
Above all, we hope to have a positive impact on society with this foundation. Roleplaying games are the way to further develop yourself and make new friends. We are committed to to create a space where you can do that.
Gerda Roorda: Financial Manager
In 2020 I was asked to play in a D&D group. I knew what it was but had never played it before and joined the group. After that first playing session, the game has not let go of me. It has brought me new friends and a lot of creativity. And I think this can be valuable for many other people as well. From there, the idea grew to set up a foundation and hopefully give many more people such a great experience.
In my daily life I am also a conductor and coordinator of Cultural Participation at Keunstwurk. For the foundation I am mainly concerned with the business aspect such as finances and building a network.
Melanie de Haan: Creative Director
English teacher, writer, illustrator, GM. My love for fantasy has always been there, but eight years ago I came across tabletop RPGs and it has been my biggest hobby ever since. Besides that I have a pedagogical background and come into contact with young people on a daily basis. I am very enthusiastic to share my passion for games with others. Connecting, creating and meeting each other in a playful way is what gives me a lot of energy. You will often come across me on location, as a GM or running around behind the scenes, and I also like to give courses. See you there!
Eline Kleingeld: President
As a project leader and producer in the cultural sector, I make it possible to tell stories. Stories that matter, that physically and emotionally move or challenge you. The form in which these stories are told is often a performance or presentation. Mythmakers makes it possible to tell stories in a different form in collaboration with young people. The combination between creativity, education and the target group appeals to me. I find it exciting to be able to contribute to that.
