Saturday’s Event: November 3, 2012
In celebration of the continuous influence of Dutch arts and culture in New York City.
Last year’s Five Dutch Days program featured more than 20 events, including such highlights as the directorial debut of Famke Janssen at the Tribeca Grand Hotel, private tours of the exhibition Willem de Kooning at the Museum of Modern Art, and a Dutch JAZZ evening presented by Robert Bosscher and friends at the Zinc Bar in Greenwich Village.
Join us for another exciting season by registering your event now and become part of this unique program. If you or your organization has a Dutch-related project to be hosted at your site, please let us know. As one of the participating venues, your event will be listed on our calendar and you will have the opportunity to promote your event to members and friends of the Netherland-America Foundation, and beyond. Or, if you have a site/venue available, but need ideas for programs, please also let us know. We can put you in touch with musicians, performers, writers and others who need a space in which to present their work.
Stay tuned for the 2012 calendar and more content in the upcoming weeks!
