Sharing Arts Society (SAS) and St Martin
Every year SAS chooses a theme for the Parade from one of the 17 Global Goals of the United Nations. These provide the basis for a sustainable shared planet and are a contemporary translation of the values that St Martin symbolises. Martin of Tours became famous for sharing his cloak with a beggar. He is the patron saint of Utrecht and his feast day is celebrated in style from 4 through 11 November. For more information go to sharingartssociety.com and sintmaartenutrecht.nl.
