In 2006 CODART celebrates Rembrandt’s 400th birthday with a congress in his birthplace Leiden and a study trip to the eastern and northern provinces of his own country, the Netherlands.
From 12 to 14 March 2006, CODART will hold its annual congress in Leiden, followed from 14 to 19 March by the CODART NEGEN study trip to the eastern and northern provinces of the Netherlands. Registration for these events opens today.
CODART NEGEN congress: Dutch and Flemish art in land of Rembrandt (12-14 March 2006)
On 12, 13 and 14 March 2006, the CODART NEGEN congress will be held in Leiden. The hosting museum is Stedelijk Museum De Lakenhal. It is at our annual congresses that CODART best fulfills its purpose, bringing together the largest number of colleagues from around the world in a variety of activities. This year you will learn more about the collections of the eastern and northern provinces of the Netherlands. The other main focus is on Rembrandt. The plenary program on Monday morning will devote attention to these aspects of CODART NEGEN. The afternoon workshops are devoted to the work of the curator. The members’ meeting, which will be held on Tuesday afternoon, provides participants with the opportunity to introduce future projects for which they are seeking partners. In the morning a program of excursions in Leiden is on offer.
A certain number of grants is available for travel to and participation in the congress, for CODART members from Central and Eastern Europe and Latin America. Be sure your application, checked for a grant, reaches the CODART congress bureau by 31 December 2005.
CODART NEGEN study trip to the eastern and northern provinces of the Netherlands (14-19 March 2006)
From 14 to 19 March 2006, CODART will hold its annual members’ study trip. This year’s trip will take us to the outskirts of the Netherlands, with visits to the collections and hidden treasures of the eastern and northern provinces: Enschede, Groningen, Assen, Leeuwarden, Zwolle, Heino and Apeldoorn.
Their sense of quietness and space makes them seem a long way from the dynamic cultural centers of Amsterdam, The Hague and Rotterdam. Castles and manor houses, states (country houses on estates) and borgen (fortified manor houses in the province of Groningen) – they all lie hidden and sometimes even a little forgotten in the midst of forests or on well-maintained country estates. As well as these collections, the program also includes museum visits.
A small number of grants is available for participation in the study trip, for CODART members from Central and Eastern Europe and Latin America. Be sure your application, checked for a grant, reaches the CODART congress bureau by 31 December 2005.
