Opening van Turks-Nederlandse Tentoonstelling

Hallo iedereen, (fok) Ik ben nieuw hier maar ik dacht dat het misschien leuk was om deze tentoonstelling onder jullie aandacht te brengen. Ik wil gaan, maar ik verbaasde me erover dat er maar weinig aandacht voor deze tentoonstelling is op fora? Is er weinig animo voor dit soort dingen onder Turken? Groetjes.

We kindly invite you to the opening of our exhibition:
Celebrating each other’s influence Netherlands – Turkey:
400 years of architecture, urban development and interior design

The year 2012 has been one of celebrations; and one of these is the 400th anniversary of official and economic relations between the Netherlands and Turkey. To celebrate this occasion, we would like to invite you to the opening of our photo exhibition “Celebrating each other’s influence: Netherlands – Turkey, 400 years of architecture, urban development and interior design”.

This photo exhibition was preceded by a photo contest wherein nearly 200 photos were submitted by amateur and professional photographers. The best 40 photos showing how 400 years of contact, migration and economic relations have influenced each other’s landscapes, will be displayed during the exhibition.

We would like to invite you to the opening of the exhibition on 8 November, which will take place at Architectuurcentrum Aorta, Achter de Dom 14, 3512 JP Utrecht.
Will you attend the whole programme from 15.30 hours onwards (opening, debate and exhibition) or will you arrive at 17 hours (only to view the exhibition)?
