De Veerman aims to stimulate creativity, art experience, knowledge and understanding of the arts, and this in relation to the surrounding world. Art, culture and education are becoming increasingly connected with other social components. De Veerman was founded in 2000 with the aim to develop, implement and disseminate art-educational projects.
ONT MOET finds its root in the Dutch word ‘ontmoeten’, which means ‘to meet’. Splitting up the original word, it fundamentally changes meaning. The word game reveals the hidden ‘not having to’ at the heart of the encounter.
With this idea, Nelle Hens, Stephanie Van Aken and Sarah Lederman will dive into the studio of Atelier 4711 this week. It is a step in the development phase of No body. The performers invite the public to actively participate in the sharing moments as much as they wish to; being a participant or being a witness has the same value for them.
Sometimes a little nostalgia for the art and culture of Chile and Argentina?
Are you in a great mood for a cosy get-together with Spanish-speaking people?
Curious to discover new things and meet new people?
Then we would like to invite you to Peña local: three bilingual meetings with music, theatre, workshops, conversations, empanadas and wine. Afterwards, we will go together to two Spanish-spoken performances (with Dutch subtitles) in deSingel.
Feel like being part of these peñas?
De Veerman will be present three times at the Festival of Architecture (F/a) 2019 with the central theme 'Connect the city!'.
And because we as De Veerman like to make connections, we offer the Architelier workshop twice and throw open the doors of one of the studios that has been rebuilt!
The Summer Academy: ten inspiring ateliers and four surprising artists in residence.
For those who were not there and are curious. Or for those who were there and are willing to allow some melancholy.
The pictures! The podcasts! The animated films!
Atelier 4711 is our home and that of many creative people, artists and organisations that support artists. Not only do we want to offer studio spaces, but with Atelier 4711 we want to be a place where residents can share knowledge and expertise with each other.
There is a workspace available in one of the studios. For this we are looking for artists or a collective of artists, who are interested in becoming part of this club. Preferably they are also interested in participation and education.
At the end of September, students of the second and third grade of secondary education from Mechelen can take part in a workshop in the Hof van Busleyden Museum: a large and beautiful Renaissance palace where the visitor enters into the glorious era of the Renaissance and its Burgundians.
During this production day, the young people take over the museum and immerse themselves in the stories of this humanist free haven.
Ideal for the bedside table, the smallest room, the hammock, the mountain hut or where you will be retiring this summer.
The Wonderful Pen commités from Antwerp, Tongeren and Turnhout have compiled a selection of the rich harvest of stories in a book.
