  • Deventer, First Day
    just ten minutes walk from the centre of town and yet embedded in tranquil water ways with swans and ducks pleasantly promenading the calm surroundings with safe havens of reeds for breeding At 10 am it was time for Bob to accompany Grzegorz to the city hall the Stadhuis for his concert On arrival in town Grzegorz began immediately to set up and tune his zithers He decided to use the old wooden table in the reception hall to place his zithers because it was a natural resonance body for the instruments Johan Kuiper adopted all artists who were not busy at that time for a guided tour through the citycenter under his wings and nice annecdotes and historical facts In the meantime Bekir Viorica Arjen Bouw a local actor and Robert were busy with the childrens workshops in the Mozaiek School in Deventer and the band was rehearsing in a side building Grzegorz s concert was an hour of audible bliss as his music echoed through the hall and everyone congratulated him after he finished A meal in the restaurant of the city hall was organised and then back to the Havenquartier Patrick and Bob then caught up with the documentation material and the reports At 6 pm was the official meeting with the mayor of Deventer Andries Heidema who was really interested in the whole exhibition and the Culture Trail His warm words of greeting the Culture Trail in Deventer were sincere and he then joined the team for the evening meal made by Jean Klare a Deventer artist who enjoys cooking for groups like ours when no set menu is asked for and he can use his experience and imagination and combine them in trumping with a more creative cuisine delicious Judith Antonio and Thomas were the

  • Deventer, Second Day
    already at the round table where Bob joined them There were plenty of cultural operators present and the main topic of discussion was the Culture Trail its meaning its beginning and its aims A very interesting discussion emerged concerning artists work and the function of the institutions how these two bodies meet at present and how the future can show more progress in working closer together in awareness of common goals and aims The evening meal was Asian and was a variety of Indonesian and Chinese foods The Dutch are really spoiling the team most of whom will find it difficult to go back to their bachelor diet at the end of the tour After a few relaxing hours the evening programme started with soundscapes poetry and video performance by Mia Mia Her haunting texts were floating on the waves of sound and pictures creating new communication forms of the spoken word its root its meaning uncovering the essence of unspoken emotion Almar Otten and Heleen Bosma are a couple and both authors They are really well known to all the locals Almar is best known for his thrillers which take place in Deventer Heleen is the city poet until 2011 Their depth and humor in the spoken word is a reminder of the importance of the language and how each word paints a picture in the sub conscience which we hardly recognize consciously but feel with our hearts when the word strikes the chord of our souls Then it was time for the Culture Trail band to play Their hosts from the boat Fransien and Bert had taken time extra to come over and listen to them The band played to a welcoming audience their sound perfected by the sound engineer Elio Debets from Studio Delta Beats which resides

  • Art is alive. Share it!
    soul The possibility to express oneself creatively gives a sense of freedom from our daily burdens It helps us to reflect positively and strive for better solutions If we think about our main goal in life I guess everyone will agree with me that to feel FREE would sum it up A lot of people think that if they work in a more scientific organisational or technical field they should not even try to be artistic Wrong This is just a cover up We are not using all the artistic or emotional brain power we have in us We are only used to the structures needed for our work and so as we get older we seem to think there is nothing artistic in us Wrong again Just try to do something on a regular basis like with sports and you will be surprised just how artistic you can be One of the messages everyone should understand is what artists did at the beginning of their career They began to express themselves through whatever means they felt drawn to Some felt the desire to play an instrument others to paint and others yet to write poetry and then books They were also overloaded by the daily routine of school and homework but they persevered Most of us succumbed to the call of the economic world got a proper job and kept up with the Jones or even overtook them But we at European House of Arts think that everybody can make use of their hidden talents to reach that inner freedom you probably just haven t noticed them yet What you will find is that art can free your mind and soul What can I get out of this as an artist Well first of all it is a platform for established artists to motivate other artists to aspire to By chipping in to European House of Arts festivals the more successful artists can show what they are artistically capable of and at the same time be a catalyst for many new creative thoughts cropping up in the minds of other people at the festival To try to better the master is a natural human instinct whether the master is a philosopher author sculptor or painter Positive competition inspires people and spurs on those who feel the need to answer the call this can be a younger artist or even one of the team who is not an artist or visitors who feel urged to try something out It is most gratifying for professional artists to know that the fruits of their work has more than just a decorative value on the wall of a living room or simply dead in a catalogue somewhere Art lives and this life can be shared European House of Arts is a growing network and there are so many opportunities for artists to get involved in art happenings all over Europe The integrative character of the network means direct contact with people of other
