From the mouths of babes From the mouths of babes

Sadly, despite all the screaming we did on Saturday, no change in the government’s iron decision to cut funds for culture. Maybe they’d change their mind if they saw this speech which nearly made me cry on Saturday. Because Sep, only 9 years old, delivering his first public speech, told us why culture and expression is an absolutely essential factor of our human condition. Watch and weep (quietly while no one is watching).

Scream for culture along with the rest of the Netherlands. Tomorrow, practically every cultural institution in the Netherlands will be rallying together to demonstrate against financial measures being taken by the government in the area of arts and culture. Read more about this in the new weekly column, in English, at overeindhoven.nl – it’s called Eindhoven Culture Files, and it’s written by me. Anyway, see you tomorrow at the 18 Septemberplein, and don’t forget to bring your best screaming voice (plus lots of water!)
