Princess Beatrix attends celebrations of Simavi 90 years

We are proud to announce that Her Royal Highness Princess Beatrix of the Netherlands will attend the ninetieth anniversary celebrations of Simavi on Wednesday, October 28th. Like her mother and grandmother, Her Royal Highness Princess Beatrix is a patron of Simavi.



The celebrations on October 28 begin with a symposium commemorating the Simavi’s past, present and future in the Mennonite Church in Haarlem. After the symposium, the exhibition “Prevention is better, 90 years of Simavi” will open in photo gallery ‘De Gang’. The exhibition features photographs taken by Raymond Rutting – who won the award of Photojournalist of the Year in 1997 and 2004 – during his visit to Ghana where he photographed the impact of Simavi’ s work.

The exhibition is open from October 31 to 31 January 2016. Entrance is free. Address: De Gang, Grote Houtstraat 43, Haarlem.
