Boijmans is currently developing three programmes in Rotterdam-Zuid. These have emerged from conversations that have been held in the neighbourhood. The first programme, starting this school year, offers extra art classes three days a week for pupils from the Savornin Lohman School, the Willem van Oranje School and the Bogerman School. The second programme arises from discussions with local residents about communal eating and explores connections between Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen’s historical art and design collections and the city’s contemporary food cultures. The third programme is a partnership with young makers, providing a podium for their work and helping them to find opportunities for their professional development in Rotterdam-Zuid.
