dag Kasper. Kun je aub met mij contact opnemen, Xavier De Keyser van de Steinerschool. We willen jou vragen om te komen spreken op vrijdag 18 december voor de bovenbouw over jouw werk rond Sebrenica.
Beste Kasper Goethals, ik ben dramaturgie bij Ntgent. Ik las over uw project over Srebrenica maar ben in het buitenland. Is de tentoonstelling nog te zien na 6 maart? Kunnen wij eventueel afspreken? Ik bereid een In Europa avond voor in april en daarin komt Srebrenica aan bod. Het zou interessant zijn om ook de situatie vandaag te behandelen. Vandaar mijn vraag. Vriendelijke groet Koen Tachelet
