Where the Equator meets the Greenwich Meridian...

It is our pleasure to invite you to the opening of an exhibition by artists from São Tomé e Príncipe, the small island group in the middle of the world.

Clifford Chance is involved in Africa, in terms of business but also as a supporter of local development in Africa. It supports a number of projects in São Tomé e Príncipe, the small country located in the Gulf of Guinea, in the areas of education, culture and active citizenship. São Tomé e Príncipe has a strong cultural and artistic tradition, which, as the country itself, is a bit of a secret.

A number of lawyers of Clifford Chance Amsterdam, united in Stichting Support São Tomé e Príncipe, have therefore taken the initiative to organise an exhibition of Sao Tomean art in Amsterdam in cooperation with Galerie ArtVisie and CACAU (www.cacacultural.com), a Sao Tomean cultural organisation. The exhibition will include paintings from a number of Sao Tomean artists, including the younger generation, as well as sculptures made from old metal (in this case old bicycles).

The exhibition will take place at Galerie ArtVisie and will open on 7 October at 16hr00 in the presence of some of the artists. The exhibition will continue until the end of November, so if it is not possible to attend the opening, please visit the exhibition on another day.
