2018 was the 400th death anniversary of the poet and playwright Gerbrand Adriaenszoon Bredero (16 March 1585 – 23 August 1618). The few performances of his plays do not attract a mass of spectators. To reach a wider audience, Stichting Bredero 2018 organized various activities and, for the first time in the long tradition of Bredero commemorations, the possibilities of the internet were used. This article aims to reflect on both the successes and learning points of this memorial year.
