The future of… , Club of Amsterdam

October 13th 2014 
19.30 – 22.00 hrs

Museum Geelvinck, Amsterdam

Moderator: Annegien Blokpoel (Director of PerspeXo)

The Club of Amsterdam is an independent, international, future-oriented think tank involved in channeling preferred futures. It involves those who dare to think out of the box and those who don’t just talk about the future but actively participate in shaping outcomes. Theme of this evening is ‘The future of Historic Pianos’. The discussion – part of the Club of Amsterdam event series ’the future of …’- is a follow-up of the key-topic of the annual conference of ICOM / CIMCIM 2014 in Scandinavia, an expert meeting for museums with musical instruments. The results of this conference will be the starting point of this discussion in Amsterdam and is meant for an international public of experts and students alike in the field of music, museums and cultural heritage.
