The magic of the northern lights, idyllic expansive landscapes, and impressive panoramic views of the Arctic. Kunsthal Rotterdam will be showing examples of the majestic art of Canadian painting between 1910 and 1940 – immensely popular back home, but hardly known in the Netherlands.
‘Magnetic North’ presents over eighty magical paintings and thirty sketches by the Canadian modernists. At the beginning of the twentieth century, these artists moved away from the crowded cities to settle deep in Canadian nature. Through experimenting, they were searching for a new visual language to match the way in which Canadian society was expanding and changing at that time. The members of the Group of Seven, a famous collective of landscape painters, as well as the artist Tom Thomson who was their source of inspiration, created an almost mythical, exalted image of Canada in their paintings. Depicting an uncultivated territory, they ignored the reality of the country’s original inhabitants and its rapidly growing population and industrialisation.

At the heart of the exhibition, photographic and video material puts these paintings in a critical context. Seen from the perspective of the First Nations, this documentation offers a framework for the historical narratives that are missing from these famous paintings. Also part of the exhibition is the work of Emily Carr, who was a contemporary of these artists and known for her paintings that did pay attention to the native communities of Canada in the early twentieth century.
For this exhibition, Kunsthal Rotterdam has entered into an international collaboration with the Art Gallery of Ontario in Toronto, Canada, the National Gallery of Canada in Ottawa, and Shirn Kunsthalle in Frankfurt, Germany.
The NCCC will be organising an event during the exhibition. Dates and details will depend on the prevailing Corona rules nearer the time.
De Canadese markt is zeer interessant. In het webinar Canada: plantaardige en alternatieve eiwitten op 1 december 2021, 16:00 - 17:00 uur, praten we u bij over de laatste ontwikkelingen en kansen in Canada op het gebied van plantaardige en alternatieve eiwitten.
Canada investeert flink in deze groeisector. Gaat u er machines en technologie leveren?
Canada is een van de grootste exporteurs van agrarische bulkproducten ter wereld. Maar de overheid en de industrie willen de sector ingrijpend veranderen. Ze willen meer hoogwaardige producten ontwikkelen, vooral in de plantaardige en alternatieve eiwitten. De wereldmarkt voor deze producten groeit snel.
Er worden grote bedragen geïnvesteerd in de transitie van de productie van eiwitrijke producten. Het hele proces van productie tot verkoop – de supply chain, oftewel toeleveringsketen – wordt gemoderniseerd. Door te innoveren kan de sector meer hoogwaardige producten maken voor de consumentenmarkt. Canadese bedrijven zijn geïnteresseerd in nieuwe verwerkingstechnologieën uit Europa.
Dit interactieve webinar geeft u een overzicht van de laatste ontwikkelingen in Canada op het gebied van plantaardige en alternatieve eiwitten. We gaan graag met u in gesprek over de mogelijkheden voor uw bedrijf.
Meld u aan voor dit webinar. De uiterste aanmelddatum is 24 november 2021. Deelname is gratis. Er kunnen maximaal 20 bedrijven deelnemen, in verband met het interactieve karakter van het webinar.

Global players and many strong Dutch LSP’s create a logistics environment with endless possibilities.
Limited space here in the Netherlands drives the need for innovative and smart solutions.
HIDC will be there, leading a panel discussion about innovation. See you there?
What do these Provence's have to offer? What do you need to know if you want to start a business there? Are there particular industries that need Dutch skills and technical know-how? Are the rules different in each Provence?
There are many places to look for help, both here in the Netherlands as well as in Canada. How can you find the help you need?
Details (including confirmation of date and speakers) and zoom link to follow.
Do you have questions for our panel? Then send them to us and we'll make sure to have the answers ready for you.
Expo 2022 Floriade Almere will be the 7th International Horticultural Expo in the Netherlands. For six months, the attention to the theme ‘Growing Green Cities’ will be focused on the cities of the future. Visitors will have a unique and meaningful experience: during the expo they will be invited to ‘explore, touch and change’.
This expo will be the start of a new city district close to Amsterdam in the Netherlands called Almere. Almost everything that will be built for the exhibition will become a permanent part of the legacy of Almere. The structures will remain and become part of the community for future activities.
The Earth has seven billion inhabitants and growing, and more than fifty percent live in cities. By 2050, this percentage will have increased to nearly seventy percent. With continued and relentless urbanisation, we have no option but to look for new ways to keep our cities safe, healthy and attractive and to find a better balance between ‘grey’ and ‘green’ infrastructure. We invite the world to join us and to contribute to our theme: Growing Green Cities.
Within this context, four sub-themes are explored:
Green: Parks – vertical green on buildings and green structures make cities more attractive and resilient;
Food:Food habits, -production, -waste, -safety and food security solutions;
Health:The contribution of green structures to a healthy living environment as well as thecontribution made by green spaces to the physical and mental vitality of the citizens;
Energy:Finding solutions to address sustainable energy, heat stress and climate adaptation, as well as the contribution of green spaces for a liveable city.
Food production plays a major role in the green city of the future. The question is, what role can agriculture and horticulture play in accelerating this vision? The Netherlands is the second largest food producer worldwide, which is special given its small area for growing. This makes the Netherlands a hotspot for potential agricultural and horticultural innovations.
Floriade will open its doors for six months from: April-October 2022.
