Things to do in January – a wish list (2018)

The new year is here, with all it has to offer. I have made no resolutions because I see no point in doing that. I’m sure all the things I want to do will stay on a mental list and will bother me all the time, as they usually do. But I like to have a list of all the events I plan to attend each month, and I will keep sharing it with you. I changed the title – the bucket list became a wish list, which I think is more appropriate. 

Child and art - Rijksmuseum

So, what’s on my list for January 2018?

  • The National Tulip Day: on January 20, a big tulip garden will be set in Dam Square and I hope the weather will be kind and let us enjoy the flowers. I will not miss that!
  • I love dance shows, and the one I’ll see this month is Europium, a show put on stage by the Greek company RootlessRoot. From the trailer, looks like it’s a challenging and rough show, the kind that makes you go home with a head full of questions. I can’t wait! On 16 and 17 January in Stadsschouwburg.
  • The First Art Fair of the year is here, and I’ll try to pay a visit: on 17-21 January at the Passenger Terminal Amsterdam.
  • Outsider Art Museum is also on the list for this month.
  • Charlotte Salomon exhibition at the Jewish Historical Museum.
  • The Winter Reading at the Van Rossum bookstore, an evening of fiction and poetry by students and faculty of the International Writers’ Collective.

I think that’s enough for one month. I might squeeze in a cinema evening as well, because I didn’t see the new Star Wars yet. What are your plans for this month? Let me know if I’m missing any interesting events!
