Wednesday (9th November) Amsterdam art gallery ArTicks presents a collection of works by local children from playgroups participating in the second annual Week van het Geld 2011 (Money Week), a Dutch initiative aimed at teaching children how to sensibly mange money.
The paintings are inspired by the theme of financial risk-taking and investment, and have produced interesting, honest and creative results. Firm believers in the importance of children being creatively stimulated, the management of ArTicks were keen to lend their support to the project by offering to host an exhibition of the paintings, and the prize giving for the best four works.
The young artists participating in the exhibition will also speak about their paintings during the event, and actor Hassan Slaby, who plays Eman Loukili in the children’s soap opera SpangaS, will be present to lend a touch of junior glamour to the proceedings. The prizewinners will be announced by Alderman Roeland Rengelink and the prizes will be awarded by Anky van Leeuwen from the Verbond van Verzekeraars (Association of Insurers), one of the organizers of Money Week. The exhibition is open to the public from12:00 to 18:00 on Wednesday 9th November at ArTicks Gallery, Singel 88, in the centre of Amsterdam. The prize-giving takes place at 15:30.
