Sunday 29 May: Reception and Exhibition Spanish Masters + CoR Dinner 
Hermitage
(for COTER members, NDC’s, CoR Staff and guests,  on invitation only)

The dinner will take place in the Hermitage Amsterdam, the former Parish Old Lady Huys from 1681, later called Amstelhof. It is an impressive historic building with classic looks and a stylish tight inner. Before dinner you can visit the exhibition Spanish Masters from the Hermitage.
The World of El Greco, Ribera, Zurbarán, Velázquez, Murillo & Goya includes more than sixty superior paintings and a rich collection of graphic works and applied arts masterpieces. Never before has the Netherlands hosted such a comprehensive survey of Spanish art, with work that is hardly represented in Dutch museum collections. Together they tell the story of the rise and glory of Spanish art in the Golden Age, which would continue to influence art into modern times.

 

Monday 30 May: COTER Dinner - Informal Walking Dinner
EYE Film Museum

The organisation of the CoR Forum on the EU-Urban Agenda will host an official dinner at the Eye Filmmuseum Amsterdam.  In 2012 this new building with a spectacular design by the Viennese firm Delugan Meissl Associated Architects, opened on the northern bank of the IJ harbour in Amsterdam. EYE is the first major cultural institution to make the leap across the IJ. It strives to be the ‘house of film’, a modern museum full of many things to see and do, all of which are related to film.

For security reasons, there will be a strict access control to the venue.

Only participants who have been duly registered for the dinner will be authorised to enter the venue of the dinner.
