Collegetour #2- Pride in plant kingdom

26 July

Dit evenement is afgelopen.

From July 31, Pride festivities will be celebrated all over Amsterdam. Take a break to retreat into the sensory-friendly environment of the Hortus for a Pride week among plants.

We kick off the Pride festivities with an incredibly interesting Botanical College Tour on Wednesday, July 26th. Together with the audience and guests from the fields of science and art, we will explore the means of Gender & Taxonomy. What does ‘gender’ mean and how do we perceive it as humans? And what does gender mean in the plant kingdom? Can we learn from the diversity found in the world of flora? In our iconic greenhouse, the audience will be actively involved in the dialogue, with ample room for questions and discussion. Language is English.

Guests are Geertje Mak (Prof. Dr. Gender History at the UvA), Marnel Scherrenberg (former collection manager at Naturalis) and Sergi Rusca (curator at RADIUS CCA).

The garden is exclusively open for this Botanical College and will take place from 7:30 PM to 9:00 PM. The language used will be English. This event is wheelchair accessible.
