Reading Festival


During the Reading Festival there is plenty to do at the Eemhuis. At KAdE you can join children's tours, a walk-in workshop, or come listen to the stories from the children's book: Caspar with the Eyes!

Sunday, Jan. 27, from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m., we celebrate the National Reading Days for the second time with a Reading Festival at the Eemhuis. An afternoon full of fun activities for toddlers and preschoolers. Kunsthal KAdE also participates in the Read Aloud Festival! Especially for the exhibition MAESTRO VAN WITTEL the children's book: Caspar met de Oogjes is written. From 1 to 4 p.m. you can make your own glasses to learn to look at art even better, in the workshop 'Make your own Eyes'! You can find us on the 4th floor of the Eemhuis in room 2. 

In the Eemzaal behind Kunsthal KAdE, we will read from the children's book Caspar with the Eyes at the following times: 13:15 - 14:15 - 15:15. And if you want to join a children's tour, you can also do so at 1:30 or 2:30 p.m. at Kunsthal KAdE! Fun for kids ages 4 and up!
