ABOUT EXHIBIT

https://www.beeldenaanzee.nl/nl/jaume-plensa

De Spaanse beeldhouwer Jaume Plensa (1955) geniet wereldwijd grote faam met zijn metershoge sculpturen van vrouwenhoofden in de openbare ruimte. Ze hebben de ogen gesloten en bieden een bijna meditatieve aanblik. De zo typerende sfeer van bezonkenheid en inkeer kwam prachtig tot uitdrukking in Plensa’s veel geprezen tentoonstelling in de Basilica di San Giorgio Maggiore tijdens de Biënnale van Venetië in 2015.

Looking forward to seeing you!

ABOUT TACOCAT
Tacocat is the perfect antidepressant. This four-piece from Seattle makes garage punk in a rainbow jacket with a bowl of glitter poured over it. In 2016 they conquered the indie scene with catchy songs about menstruation and jerks. Now the band is back with “This Mess Is A Place” and luckily they still have fun!

Check out the official video for “Grains of Salt” on YouTube:

ABOUT ALTSTADT EINDHOVEN
Altstadt has become a staple in Eindhoven. The cozy cool café has been a fixture on Stratumseind for decades. You can play a game of pool, throw some darts, and go to a good concert a few times a week. Altstadt strives to present both new talent and acclaimed artists on their stage. So there is always a cool band or act; from indie to rock, via psych to electro and pop.

Let’s Play Footy (Football)!

View LGBTQ meetups Save the date: Sunday, 25 Aug 2019 2:00

Come have a fun Sunday afternoon playing Footy! Footy is just like regular football/soccer except the field is much smaller. It’s great exercise and a lot of fun!

I am on a women’s footy team of mostly LGBT women and we want to get a big group of girls together to have some fun and play footy. So come join us – all skill levels are welcome!

The location has a bar next to the field so after playing we can have a few drinks and snacks together.

– It will cost 2 euro per person to rent the field – and then you just have to pay for any drinks or food that you want
– You don’t need special shoes (cleats) or any special gear to play, just
clothes you can run in.
– The field is called Footy Park – 10-15 min walk from Sloterdijk station

Bike tour “Romeinse Limesroute” (Part 3 – Arnhem/Nijmegen – 55 km)

View LGBTQ meetups Save the date: Saturday, 12 Oct 2019 11:00

Hello Bikers,
the winter is over, so it’s the perfect time to take our bikes and spend a day out, enjoying the Dutch nature and a bit of culture.

This tour is a part of a longer route (220 km) from Katwijk, on the North Sea coast, to the German border at Millingen (passing through Leiden, Woerden, Utrecht, Arnhem and Nijmegen), that follows the Dutch section of the Limes – the border of the Roman Empire – which ran along the old River Rhine. In 2nd century AD – when the empire was at its greatest – the Limes ran from the North Sea at Katwijk along the rivers Rhine and Danube all the way to the Black Sea.
Along the border Romans built twenty forts and a series of watch-towers (castella), interconnected by roads. Unfortunately, not many evidences remain, but we will see modern reconstructions and information boards (in Dutch).

The tour starts at Arnhem Centraal Station and ends at Nijmegen Centraal Station.
This ride is a bit more challenging than the previous ones (300m total altitude difference and up to 8% slope), thus a bike with gears is needed.
Since tour ends at a different location, please bring your own bike on the train (supplement of €6.90 needed).
After the tour we may relax a bit in Nijmegen, having a drink or a bite close to the station. You may also leave at 18, just after ride, if you prefer.

We will have packed lunch somewhere on the way. Bring some sandwiches or your favourite food and enough water.

Last, but not least! Dutch weather is unpredictable, so in case of bad weather, the day before I will cancel this meetup.

Looking forward to meet you and cycle together!
Giovanni
