A TRADITIONAL HOUSE OF THE SWAT VALLEY OF NORTH PAKISTAN

Houses in the Swat valley used to be built from
wood earth and stones. Nowadays concrete has
replaced the wood.

 

In the  North of Pakistan the houses are on the
slopes in the valleys. Natural stone and wood
were the most important building materials.
The wood has now been replaced by concrete.
The wooden chairs racks cupboards and boxes
are decorated with carving in which curls and
floral patterns dominate.

Urgent TropenMuseum Petition

Urgent 

TropenMuseum

Petition

Please help the Tropenmuseum stay alive and open...

http://petities.nl/petitie/hou-het-tropenmuseum-open

Dear Friends 

We are at a crossroads where one of the great lights of non Western world heritage will be extinguished in name of budget cuts.

This is not just a loss to the Netherlands but to the World and the Dutch Government should know we care! Please read below and add your name most urgently to this petition as described.

Time is of the essence!

Amsterdam's Tropenmuseum (Museum of the Tropics) is one of Europe's leading ethnographic museums. Between its rich permanent collection, which reflects Dutch colonial history, and its vivid temporary exhibitions, visitors can glimpse the past, present and future of non-Western cultures around the globe. A visit to the Tropenmuseum is a journey through time and around the world. One gets to know widely different cultures and get an excellent impression of everyday live in the tropics. The museum accommodates eight permanent exhibitions and an ongoing series of temporary exhibitions, including both modern and traditional visual arts and photographic works. The museum's rooms, expertly guide people through Asia, Oceania, Africa and Latin America via authentic art, household and religious objects, photographs, music, film and interactive displays. The museum is also renowned for its efforts in child-friendly exhibitions. Tropenmuseum Junior offers an educational, inspiring and entertaining programme for kids (6 to 13 year olds), aimed at introducing them to different cultures.

 

As the public face of the Royal Tropical Institute, a foundation that sponsors the study of tropical cultures around the world, the Tropenmuseum is a grand institution, both inside and out.

The museum was established in 1864 and it's beautiful brick building dates from 1926 and sits alongside the spacious greenery of Oosterpark.

The Tropenmuseum is one of the most fascinating anthropological museums in the Netherlands, but is now in great danger. 

URGENT

please help the Tropenmuseum stay alive and open...

 

PLEASE SIGN before 30 June !!!

http://petities.nl/petitie/hou-het-tropenmuseum-open

 

Send this email also to other people who would be willing to participate in signing this important petition

 

Please read the following information regarding the Tropenmuseum's current plight and sign the petition as requested. On the agenda is a Dutch government decision to give the Tropenmuseum funds to survive another two years, after which the Tropenmuseum will be have to merge with the Volkenkunde Museum in Leiden and the Africa Museum in Berg en Dal. If this does not happen the museum will be closed down !

 

The KIT Library and research and Tropenmuseum, Amsterdam's ethnographic and multicultural museum, is being hit hard by budget cuts. Over half of the staff will lose their jobs and the research library, filled with one of a kind publications from around the globe dated from as early as 1400 AD, will simply shut down. We need 40,000 signatures Dutch or Worldwide, to put the Tropenmuseum back on the government agenda and to tell the government that the public is not okay with this closing down of this universal institution! 

 

We need the signatures BEFORE 30 JUNE!

For non dutch speakers, on the site: please fill in your first name and last name (Ik = Identity = put your name), city (Wonende te = City = put your city) and your email and send.

 

Then click on the confirmation link in the email you will receive after from the petition site

 

Please help us save the Tropenmuseum 

 

Please forward this request for help to whom ever you think is interested.

 

Thank you

Buitenlandse Zaken heeft een bezuiniging van 20 miljoen euro afgekondigd op het Koninklijk 

Instituut voor de Tropen (KIT) en bedreigt daarmee direct het voortbestaan van het Tropenmuseum in Amsterdam.

Het is inmiddels zover, Koninklijk Instituut voor de Tropen, waar het Tropenmuseum het purgatorium van is, zal in de komende maanden ingrijpend moeten reorganiseren. 

Deze reorganisatie is ingegeven door het feit dat het ministerie van Buitenlandse Zaken de structurele financiering zal gaan stoppen per 1 januari 2014. Dit is één van de meest in het oogspringende gevolgen van de beleidsverandering onder het Kabinet Rutte ten aanzien van: 1. de xenofobie aangaande de verdraagzaamheid naar andere culturen, 

2. de zorgplicht naar het in Nederland, museaal bewaard werelderfgoed. 

3. de internationale samenwerking op dit terrein. 

 

Waarmee de frontale aanval op deze ‘flagship-store’ van de Volkenkundige musea in ons land binnenkort een voldongen feit zal zijn. Laten we dat in Nederland zomaar gebeuren?

Zonder beleidswijziging en een structurele financiering door de Nederlandse overheid, gaan belangrijke publieksfuncties van het KIT op het gebied van informatie overdracht zoals de vermaarde bibliotheek en het museum definitief verloren. Naast de kennisvernietiging zal dat wat hier verloren raakt nooit meer kunnen worden hersteld.

Wij verzoeken het Kabinet Rutte om het Tropenmuseum een structurele financiering toe te kennen, zodat de kennis en collectie van dit museum ook voor toekomstige generaties behouden blijven en doen hiermee een dringend beroep op ons parlement deze regering hiertoe op te roepen.
