Bregje Hofstede

Bregje Hofstede is a novelist, journalist and art historian from Amsterdam. She is chair and founder of the feminist platform De Bovengrondse. During her residency in Norwich, Bregje will be working on her new novel, The Hadewych Solution. Bregje says, ‘The novel is about belonging and resistance to belonging to a larger whole, and about Europe. In Dragon Hall the interconnectedness of the British Isles and the European mainland can be clearly seen and felt. Dragon Hall was a trading centre, and Norwich itself bears the marks of a Dutch presence.’
