The Amsterdam Culture Group is about getting together and exploring the city's cultural life. This group is for people who want to take advantage of what the city has to offer and meet like-minded people in the process. We visit art collections, concerts, films, theatre, cabaret, and undertake a wide array of other cultural activities. Although there might be occasional exceptions, the primary language is usually English.

I like May 5th celebrations so much more than Kings Day! Come join us for this special event. Argentinian journalist, psychological therapist and publisher Guillermo Font wrote a book about the story of the young Dutch Kik ten Boom, who joined the resistance in World War II. With the help of family and friends and countless anonymous participants, he and his network managed to hide over eight hundred persecuted Jews and political dissidents.
On 5 May the book will be presented by the author in the beautiful, historical setting of the Singelkerk or Mennonite church, set on one of the prettiest canals of Amsterdam.
High tea will be served to celebrate Dutch liberation day and to highlight the publication of 'Kik ten Boom, the Clockmaker's Grandson'.
The suggested donation is 5 euro, to be paid on location and of course, you can always bring something yourself to share as well :-)
Lingua Franca circumnavigates on a musical wandering, a journey during which the rich eastern Mediterranean traditions and western music elements blend and compose colorful soundscapes using music as their common language.
