LONG LIVE THE GERRIT RIETVELD ACADEMY!!!

On Monday May 18th, we celebrate the 42nd birthday of the Gerrit Rietveld building (the school was officially opened on May 18th, 1967). To commemorate this event, we would like to adorn the building with a human chain: a festoon ('slinger') consisting of people, forming a temporary birthday decoration. A lunch-time party, festive happening and site-specific action, all taking place at the same time.

Please come on Monday May 18th, 2009. The event starts at 13:00 hrs. We look forward to your presence.

As some of you might know, the Rietveld Academy is in real danger of losing its rightful building. Due to a mix of opportunistic politics and economic interests, there is a big chance that the school will be forced to move out of the building. It could be the last birthday of the Academy in the building - don't let this happen. Sign the petition at http://www.rietveldforrietveld.org

Dress code: WEAR ONE COLOR ONLY, BUT MAKE IT COLORFUL!!!



SIGN AND FORWARD THE PETITION TO YOUR FRIENDS.

I am a proud member of the RIETVELD PRESERVATION SOCIETY,
and so should you!!! Send your pictures to BDEBAETS@GMAIL.COM
I'll upload them here.
