6 November, annual 'Friends Lecture' in Museum Joure

Journalist and columnist Jantien de Boer talks about Landscape Pain

On 6 November next Jantien de Boer, journalist and columnist of the Leeuwarder Courant will give the annual 'Vriendenlezing' (Lecture of Friends) in Museum Joure. This lecture is organised annually by the Association of Friends of Museum Joure. The theme of the lecture is "Landscape Pain", the subject on which Jantien de Boer published a book in 2017 and which is still topical today.

The lecture starts at 20.00, the entrance fee is € 5.00, including a cup of coffee or tea. For members of the Association the entrance is free of charge (you can also become a member on the spot). Applications can be submitted until 5 November via info@vriendenvanmuseumjoure.nl or via 06 13882218 A.S. Heegsma/ 06 55121931 F. Tolsma.

Jantien de Boer has a weekly column in the weekend supplement of the Leeuwarder Courant in which she describes a topical subject or an everyday event. In 2015, for example, she wrote columns and articles about citizens who are very concerned about the loss of flowers, plants, birds and insects and about farmers and arable farmers fighting for their livelihoods.

The book "Landscape Pain, About the Future of Our Countryside", which she wrote in 2017 as a sequel to the book, already gave rise to many discussions at the time. At the moment this is still very topical! Nitrogen policy, CO2 emissions, and the current agricultural policy are topics of discussion in many living rooms and outside! An attractive evening for the Friends of Museum Joure, hopefully resulting in a lively interaction.
