My youngest brother’s latest documentary is being broadcast by National Geographic Netherlands tonight. Last year he followed huskie drivers (mushers) Roderick Glastra and Sandra Makkreel around when they were training their sled dogs, and this year was present at the World Championships 2009 in Austrua, where Glastra won the sprint title in the 8-dog category.
The documentary will be repeated on April 5 and April 19.

New Zealand gallery Muka came up with the idea of Youth Prints, selling art by “internationally renowned artists” to children for low prices. Grown-ups are not allowed in the exhibition room, and no artwork carries a name tag, so that children decide their purchases purely on what they like. Apart from New Zealand, Youth Prints exhibitions are held in Germany, Belgium and the Netherlands. From May 27 to June 7 a Youth Prints exhibition will be held at Museum Bommel van Dam in Venlo under the name Verboden voor boven de 18.
