Commissioned by the Evensfoundation and KMSKB, De Veerman developed a participatory project in which museum visitors worked with Wederik De Backer to create podcasts based on works from the Ancient Arts. The podcasts were presented as good practice at the ICOM-CECA conference.

This autumn De Veerman will be looking, together with young people, for their views on and experience of goodbyes, death and the rituals surrounding it. The starting point is the two festivals that deSingel is organizing in October (Mythos) and November (In Memoriam).
Are you between the ages of 16 and 26 and do you want to explore this theme in depth with 14 other people of the same age to come up with an artistic creation to be presented at deSingel?
Keep your weekends in September and October free and apply to Rone Fillet firstname.lastname@example.org.
In collaboration with vzw de Rand and the House of Herman Teirlinck, De Wondere Pluim will be extended to the Vlaamse Rand next school year. The first schools from several municipalities in the Flemish region around Brussels are already enthusiastic.
The Wondere Pluim editions in Antwerp, Ostend and Turnhout will be concluded this month in a festive but coronaproof manner. On Thursday 10 June in De Grote Post (Ostend), on Friday 11 June in the Warande (Turnhout) and on Saturday 26 June in the MAS (Antwerp). All in two time slots, with a very, very limited audience.
But with, no matter what, a warm moment of applause for all these fantastic writers!
