10:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.

Turning something you see into sound? An interactive youth programme.

Invite someone along

On 21st March, the Oude Kerk takes part in the Kunstschooldagen. The Kunstschooldag is an introduction to the Amsterdam Art World for 8th-grade students in Amsterdam.


How can you transform something you see into sound? First, you'll visit the musical and visual exhibition Meredith Monk: Calling. Monk is regarded as 'one of America's coolest composers' and 'a wizard of the voice'. Then, together with your classmates, you'll explore the church to find inspiration to create a graphic score, also known as sheet music. What shapes, patterns, and figures do you discover in the building that can form a playful composition together? And how does it sound when you try to translate such a shape into a tone, sound, or movement?

The workshops will take place in sessions at 10:00, 12:00, and 14:00. Registration is available through the Stichting Jam website.
