Reason for Hope, chatting with Jane Goodall

moment of the week 

35mm Grunge Photo Edge

Today I write not about art, but certainly about divine inspiration.

Do you remember that lady that lived with chimpanzees, back in the ’60’s?
I feel humbled and blessed to have been able to spend an evening with her, one of my
all-time heroines, a woman that I wanted to be when I was a young girl. A woman who changed the world… and is still doing so today.  Jane’s life story and mission have special appeal for young people. They respond not only to her passion for and curiosity about animals, but to her courage and steadfast hope for a better world.
A hope that I also have and hold.

Reaching out to young people is a high priority for Jane, and conservation education is a critical part of her work. As she says: leaders of tomorrow are created through her global youth program. Jane Goodall’s 
Roots & Shoots nurtures values of civic responsibility, environmental stewardship, and peace.
I want to help Jane reach young children in the Netherlands and ALL over the world. All children can join and partake in this global movement and start to make the world a better place. As can we all!

In the quaint ‘Zandvoorts Museum’  we have a group exhibit by photographers, and the theme is… Zandvoort!  Our very own quaint beachside village!

Along side our work, there is a very unique exhibit of photographs of Anne Frank and her family during their pre-war visits to the beach. Very touching to see.  Zandvoorts Museum, Swaluëstraat 1, Zandvoort.  Running until June 8th.  Open Wednesday to Sunday 13:00 – 17:00.  Anne Frank is running until the end of 2014.

What an honor to be able to exhibit in the AmstelArt Gallery!

It’s always nice to see an overview of one’s own ‘hard labour’, the latest works, all in one space! Heemsteedse Kunstbeurs (ArtFair) did an amazing job organizing, that was obvious from the hundreds of guests that dropped by. Beautiful weather and interesting visitors… Grateful to get positive feedback from so many art lovers.
