Lust for life | Ed van der Elsken in colour

Let’s visit “Lust for life | Ed van der Elsken in colour” in het Nederlands Fotomuseum in Rotterdam (https://www.nederlandsfotomuseum.nl/en/exhibition/lust-for-life-ed-van-der-elsken-in-colour/).

Ed van der Elsken (1925-1990) – the enfant terrible of Dutch photography – was a talented photographer and filmmaker who expressed his meetings with people in photos, photo books and films for more than 40 years. Strolling through cities such as Paris, Tokyo, Hong Kong and Amsterdam or travelling through Africa and Japan, he preferably took photographs of striking individuals with character.

The Nederlands Fotomuseum, the national museum of photography in the Netherlands, has re-stored the colour work of photographer Ed van der Elsken from destruction. This summer, the museum celebrates with Lust for Life: the first retrospective of his colour work. With the greatest icons and work never shown before.

Time schedule (approx.)

11.00 hrs. We’ll meet at the entrance of the museum
11.15 hrs. We’ll start the visit of the exhibition
13.00 hrs. Official end of visit.
For those who like we can go for coffee/tea or lunch.

The website of the museum recommends reserving your tickets in advance for the exhibition. With an e-ticket, you can skip the line and directly access the exhibition.

More information about admission/tickets here: https://www.nederlandsfotomuseum.nl/en/admission/

When buying an e-ticket, choose 11.00 hrs. as time.

Drag Wars is free for everyone!

ABOUT DRAG WARS
The queens will perform a self-chosen act. Afterwards the audience can vote which participants end up in the Top 2. The finalists compete for the win in a lip sync battle for our lives. The jury will comment on the performances and choose the final winner.

The Unorganized Thursday Drinks!

View LGBTQ meetups Save the date: Thursday, 08 Aug 2019 7:00

Desperate to start the weekend early? Want a casual way to meet new and old faces? We hear you.

Join us for after-work (or after-school, or after-whatever) merriment. This time we’ll be at (bar to be announced – read below to help us find a place) and we’ll try a different bar every month.

So easiest thing ever, with no elaborate plans, activities or schedules – Just come over, have some drinks, and a laid back chat with people.

We’ll be there at least from 7:00 to 9:30, but we’ll stay longer if the crowd stays longer! Come by early for more fun!

See you soon!

→ A couple of tips for us all
– Definitely don’t open a tab for the group, pay for all drinks and food immediately 😉
– We’re there to meet people, so be friendly, walk around, and mingle! Don’t stay only with the people you came with (unless you’re on a date, of course)!

→ So? Do you know any good places to have our meetup? It would be a great help if you could post any suggestions, what we are looking for is a place that:
– Has space indoors (because it’s cold outside!)
– Has an open space where people can mingle and walk around (instead of sitting down)
– Is reasonably close from Amsterdam city center (reachable by bike)
– Has reasonable prices and a relaxed, cozy bar vibe

Any recommendations?
