To our regret, Ernst Homburg has decided, for reasons of his own, not to continue his chairmanship of ‘Friends of MacDonald • The Dutch Connection’.
We are very pleased to have found Arie Rip prepared to take the chair on a temporary basis.
On October 11, 2017 the foundation will therefore again be able to award a prize to the true, good and beautiful debut of a writer or artist providing an unexpected outlook on the relations between Asia, Europe and North America.
Counting on his friendly support, we are wishing Ernst all the best, and are giving a warm welcome to Arie.
Fred Dijs, secretary
