Today, 7 May 2009 we bade farewell to Henk van der Walle. Henk van der Walle, born in 1932 was chair of the Board of CODART since its foundation in 1998 until the end of his term in October 2006. Under his chairmanship, CODART flourished into a professional, international and well recognized organization. After his term on the Board, Henk and his wife Gérie became the first Friends of the Friends of CODART Foundation. We are very grateful to Henk for his active commitment to all aspects of the organization. We will miss his wisdom and passion for culture and the arts.
