During the cultural year of 2007 a video art project was realized in the entrance of Hoogeveen station.

Video portraits of inhabitants of Hoogeveen who tell their personal stories. About being on a journey, the longing for new horizons. A story, a song or a rap or a fragment from a novel which is dear to its reader.
We ask people who live in Hoogeveen to recite a fragment of their choice in front of the camera. Fitting films and video clips are made to accompany these portraits. In this way the result will be a lively documentary portrait of the inhabitants of Hoogeveen.
