report discussion with the city 2016

Emma Nieuws

8 July at Oude Kerk

During this edition of the annual Discussion with the city, Oude Kerk invited Boris van der Ham to chair the discussion. Local residents, churchgoers, local businesspeople and fellow townspeople were invited to reflect on Oude Kerk’s programme and its relationship with the neighbourhood. Once again, it was evident that many people are well disposed towards Oude Kerk and its future plans: one of the visitors expressed his appreciation for the way in which the current art programming has restored the silence of the church building. There was also discussion and exploration of ways in which Oude Kerk’s congregation as well as the local residents are, or wish to be, involved with Oude Kerk, the building and the programming.
