Earlier this year I became a jury member of the Johannes Vermeer Award, the Dutch state prize for the arts. This year the prize went to violinist Janine Jansen. Minister for Education, Culture and Science Ingrid van Engelshoven presented the award on Monday 29 October 2018 in the Ridderzaal in The Hague.
Below is a picture of the jury, the minister and Janine Jansen on the evening of the award ceremony.
