Invitation: unveiling new wall poem


Stichting ArchipelpoëZie would like to invite you to the festive unveiling of a new wall poem, on Sunday 2 October. With this we will also enter our neighboring district Zeeheldenkwartier for the first time. The poem will be on the corner of Laan van Meerdervoort and De Ruijterstraat, above real estate office Real Estate Partners.

We previously sent you a save-the-date for September 17, but due to circumstances we had to move the reveal to October 2.

With this wall poem we go far back in time: Hebban olla vogala nestas hagunnan… is one of the oldest and most famous sentences in the (old) Dutch language and was written around 1100. This sentence will be put on the wall with contemporary “translation”.

The wall poem is performed in the letter Pint by designer Jasper Terra.

You are welcome from 3:30 pm.  At 4:00 pm the official part of the unveiling will begin. After the unveiling, there is an opportunity until approximately 6.30 pm to celebrate the new poem, the beautiful afternoon and the gathering with neighbors and townspeople.

We are looking forward to it and hope to see you on October 2nd.

Yours faithfully,

De Stichting ArchipelpoëZie –
Ruth van Rossum, Derk Hazekamp, Jan Hein Schouw en Arjan van der Weerd.

P.S. We advise you not to come by car and to bring an umbrella if necessary.
