Artist's Description

In mei, 2008, ben ik in Sydney, 52 jaar. Heb aardig wat Nederlandse dansavonden, feestjes en andere gelegenheden bij gewoond.
Ik zie een grote verandering in de manier waarop de huidige consul-generaal en haar voorgangsters omgaan met de oud-Nederlanders, in Sydney.

_Nog steeds best formeel, ‘with dignity’, waardig, maar veel vriendelijker. Gewoner. Houwe zo!_

She’s really a nice lady.
It was an evening put on by Dutch-link.
The presentation was by the team which reports to Dutch media
about the goings-on upside-down (Onderste boven.)

Their website
I have attended a number of events where the consul-general of the Netherlands has been present.
.
I was keen to catch her talking to the chair person of the Federation of Netherlands Societies in NSW, as well as hon. treasurer of the Dutch Australian Cultural Centre and who was the coordinator of the SBS 2EA Dutch-language programs, when I had such a good time, being one of the presenter, in the late seventies / early eighties.

I caught her taking a bite. She was a little embarrassed!
