~Survey open until end of June~
The Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam, the national museum of the Netherlands, is actively seeking collaboration with schools and partners in the Caribbean region. The museum announced recently that it was inviting schools and culture representatives on the six Dutch islands to participate in a research survey, to this end. Participation in St. Maarten has been relatively high so far, and the museum has extended the survey deadline to the end of June in order to encourage more participation amongst all of the Dutch islands. Initially, the deadline had been set for May 14.
The survey is open to all teachers of the arts in both primary and highschools, as well and to those teaching in any schools for the arts or after-school programmes. It has an aim of gaining insight into culture education across the Dutch Caribbean. The museum will also share information about its free culture education material, art competitions, collaborating opportunities and its possible support on the topic of commemoration of the Dutch slave trade past.
The survey can be completed via the link https://xs.motivaction.nl/onderzoek/Cultuuronderwijs.
Anyone interested in the arts, and keeping up with various projects and events by the Rijksmuseum can sign up for the museum’s newsletter, found on the website www.rijksmuseum.nl.
