Online is crawling with culture
Every cloud has a silver lining, especially when it comes to you picking up some more Zeeuws culture. Online is a new dimension to an old treasure: the festivals for young and old, and the museums, galleries, cinemas and more. Get them on your laptop or smartphone.
Come on a virtual tour, or take a peep behind the screen, tune in to the live sets of our infamous DJs, join in the quizzes (good for your languages!), join a stream. It’s all there – Zeeuws culture alive and online.
Museums alive alive-o!
Those chummy curators at the Zeeuws Museum have put their collection online. And made new space for you to have fun and create, online. Roll up your sleeves and set to on a series of fabulous Zeeuws colouring pictures. From 2 to 102, that’s the age range. The National Flood Disaster (Watersnood)museum has an unbelievable choice of exhibits online. Ranging from the Delta Works to artefacts from that time, and witness records. Check out their website.
The legacy lives on
Zeeland is proud of its monuments and listed buildings, and welcomes you to them, online. The Grote Kerk in Veere is one such long-standing place. Go on a virtual visit to this spectacle. It reveals the church in its smallest details. Wow.
Music is our first love
Achter het monster van de angst
Leeft de liefde toch het langst
Dus we wachten maar wat langer
En we zijn niet langer bang
Our informal translation (hope you don’t mind, Paskal):
After the monster of fear and sorrow
The love of together will live tomorrow
So we'll just wait a little bit longer
Patiently in concert and all be stronger.
You got it! In Zeeland, we’ve always said “there is another side”. There is. Thank you.
To continue with the list of our artists: Danny Vera makes home recordings from his conservatory in the back garden, including his latest hit ‘Hold on to Let Go’. Then again, if you fancy a bit of a dance at home, link to Zeeland DJ Collective. Some 20 DJ’s play various sets, and collect funds for the Red Cross and local Zeeuws business hit hard by the effects of corona.
