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.
Are you sometimes a little nostalgic for the art and culture of Chile and Argentina?
Are you in the mood for a cosy get-together with other Spanish speakers?
Want to discover new things and meet new people?

The Nederlandse Fonds voor Cultuurparticipatie (Dutch Fund for Cultural Participation) is organising a conference on 30 October with the theme of Cultural Education with Quality.
Tijl Bossuyt is the keynote speaker and will discuss two aspects in his presentation: the reality of (un)equal opportunities for cultural education and the fragmented cultural educational practice that complicates its quality.
Hans Bossmann is an artist, teacher and experience designer. He designs strategies and forms in which art can assimilate into society and society into art. He sets up situations in which he experiments with forms that stimulate personal contact and trust between people. His art facilitates curiosity, wonder, personal development and friendship. He wants to create meaningful new possibilities and does this with his audience.
