    Canadese Inuit kunst

    In 2017 viert Canada zijn 150-jarig bestaan met de nadruk op diversiteit, verzoening met de inheemse bevolking, klimaatverandering en jongeren. Dit is aanleiding voor een bijzondere galerijtentoonstelling over een van de inheemse bevolkingsgroepen van Canada, de Inuit. 

    Onlangs schonk Hans van Berkel zijn gehele collectie Inuit kunst aan Museum Volkenkunde: spekstenen beelden, grafische kunst en voorwerpen uit het dagelijks leven van de Inuit. Hiervan worden nu de topstukken getoond. Daarnaast hebben H.K.H. Prinses Margriet en Prof.  Mr. Pieter van Vollenhoven vanwege de verbondenheid met Canada, het geboorteland van de Prinses, ruimhartig een deel van hun prive collectie Inuit kunst uitgeleend. Een selectie van beide verzamelingen is nu te zien in het museum.

    Hans van Berkel

    Hans van Berkel (1946) behoort tot de grote verzamelaars van Inuit kunst in Nederland. In 1973 reist hij voor het eerst naar Canada. Hij verzamelt dan Inuit kunst en maakt kennis met deze inheemse bevolkingsgroep. Hij realiseert zich dat de aanschaf van kunst ook bijdraagt aan het respect en de waardering voor de cultuur van dit volk. Meer reizen volgen; het begin van een uitgebreide collectie. Onlangs heeft Hans van Berkel de collectie overgedragen aan Museum Volkenkunde, zoals hij ooit zei: ”Ik mag die voorwerpen even vasthouden. Straks geef ik ze door aan een volgende generatie, in de hoop dat die ze zullen waarderen en koesteren zoals ik dat gedaan heb”.

    H.K.H. Prinses Margriet en Prof. Mr. Pieter van Vollenhoven

    Prinses Margriet en Prof. Mr. Pieter van Vollenhoven hebben vanwege hun verbondenheid met het geboorteland van de Prinses ruimhartig een deel van hun privé collectie geleend voor deze tentoonstelling.
    In 1970 en 1979 reizen zij naar het hoge noorden van Canada. Ze trekken met Inuits op en maken een onvergetelijke sledereis. De Prinses en haar echtgenoot bezoeken Canada nog steeds regelmatig. De verzameling heeft een prominente plaats in hun huis. “Zo kunnen wij er elke dag naar kijken. Maar we geven het ook graag in bruikleen aan dit museum zodat ook anderen ervan kunnen genieten”, aldus de Prinses.


    Canada, afgeleid van het indiaanse woord kanata, betekent nederzetting. Al duizenden jaren wordt het land bewoond door indianen en Inuits. Vanaf de vijftiende eeuw is het land verkend en gekoloniseerd door Franse en Engelse pelsjagers en handelaren, gevolgd door missionarissen en kolonisten. In 1867 vormen vier Engelse koloniën de Canadese Confederatie, die uiteindelijk wordt ingedeeld in tien provincies en drie ‘territories’. 

    De tentoonstelling is mede georganiseerd met de Canadese Ambassade in ons land.

    • Fluevog Shoes, Heiligeweg 37, Amsterdam, 1012 XN

    An invitation to an exclusive VIP event for NCCC members, their friends and family

    Come and meet shoe design icon John Fluevog at their (hopefully) first store in the Netherlands. Such was the power of our Dutch designer reputation and fashion sense, that this is the first store to be located outside North America. Learn about Johns design philosophy, where he draws his inspiration from and why he chose Amsterdam for the first store of his global expansion plans.

    John Fluevog is an independent Canadian designer and retailer of forward-thinking footwear, who has been creating ‘unique soles for unique souls’ since 1970. His earliest customers included The Beach Boys, Alice Cooper, filmmaker Robert Altman and a slew of slightly less famous Fluevogers.

    In recent years, John Fluevog has been using eco-friendly vegetable tanned leathers and water-based glues, reducing the environmental footprint of his production and keeping with his motto; good soles leave small prints (no matter what your shoe size). More recent customers include Beyonce, Madonna and Lady Gaga. His following among male customers is extremely loyal and growing rapidly.

    In 2012, John was recognized by The Two/Ten Foundation of Canada as The Canadian Footwear Industry’s “Shoe Person of the Year,” and John Fluevog Shoes was recently named one of the world’s most innovative companies in the fashion industry by creative business experts Fast Company.

    Traditionally made in old world factories, Fluevog shoes are produced in small runs, are fully repairable, and with their look of quality and timeless luxury, always stand out in a crowd. When you wear a pair of Fluevogs, you’re wearing 47 years of traditionally made untraditional design.

    For men and women of all tastes, bring your colleagues, friends and family to this unique event. Try some on. Meet a very unique soul. Network with your peers and enjoy a borrel - Vancouver style. Purchases on the night will receive a discount as a thank you for coming out.

    Make a night of it and do something nice in Amsterdam - there's lots of things to choose from.

    The increased enforcement of Dutch authorities on sanctions and export controls underlines the extensive implications these have for all economic operators in the Netherlands. Not only does it serve as a stark reminder for would-be violators of the risks related to export controls and sanctions, they also present serious challenges for the transportation & logistics sector, especially in a transit hub such as the Netherlands. How can commercially viable business models for handling cargo be aligned with ever stricter compliance requirements? And to what extent can contracts be made trade control proof?

    The seminar aims to show the practical consequences of this new enforcement trend for parties involved in the trade of strategic goods. These include insurance companies, financial institutions, customs agents, manufacturers and distributors. The seminar will also provide an overview and update of relevant policy developments and critical issues from an EU-US trade controls perspective.

    The seminar will be held in English. For the complete programme and registration, see our website

    Mediation is één van de vormen van alternatieve geschillenbeslechting. In toenemende mate wordt gebruik gemaakt van professionele zakelijke mediation. Een belangrijk voordeel van mediation is dat men een conflict op een kosten efficiënte manier kan oplossen en het biedt de mogelijkheid de samenwerking tussen partijen voort te blijven zetten na de beëindiging van het conflict. In welke situaties is mediation een geschikt middel om een conflict op te lossen? Wat kan men van een mediator verwachten? Wat zijn verwachtingen en wensen van partijen? Wat is de meerwaarde van een mediationclausule in een contract? En wanneer is de facilitatieve mediation aanpak geschikter en wanneer de evaluatieve methode? Hoe uitvoerbaar zijn afspraken die gemaakt zijn door middel van mediation? kortom: ‘What’s in the black box?’

    Tijdens dit seminar zal aan de hand van praktijkcasussen inzicht worden gegeven in de mogelijkheden van (internationale) zakelijke mediation. Er zal besproken worden voor welke conflicten mediation een uitkomst kan bieden en wat de voor- en nadelen zijn van een mediationclausule. Daarnaast zal er stil worden gestaan bij de verschillende methoden van mediation. Verder zullen de recente ontwikkelingen met betrekking tot de uitvoerbaarheid van mediation afspraken worden besproken.
