Said Kasmi visits V2_

Said Kasmi (D66), alderman for 'Education, Culture and Tourism' for the city of Rotterdam, visits V2_.

Said Kasmi of the D66 party was appointed alderman for education, culture and tourism for the city of Rotterdam in July 2018. On November 16, he visited V2_ as part of a series of thematic working visits set up to deepen his knowledge of the cultural field.

Director Michel van Dartel described to Kasmi the important role V2_ plays in fostering cultural innovation in Rotterdam and how its thematic, interdisciplinary approach brings together diverse groups of people who share a fascination with and concern about the impact of technological advancement on society and individuals’ lives.

In a subsequent conversation between the alderman and representatives of Architectuur Instituut Rotterdam, Het Nieuwe Instituut, Designplatform Rotterdam, the International Architecture Biennale Rotterdam, GalerieVivid, the Willem de Kooning Academy, and Worm, it became apparent that the wide diversity that Rotterdam's smaller and medium-sized cultural organizations offer may be the city’sbiggest strength.
