Visit to ‘Am Tunnel’

We are organising a visit to the Spuerkeess Contemporary Art Gallery ‘Am Tunnel’. The Am Tunnel is 15 metres underground and some 350 metres long. In addition to temporary exhibitions, there is a permanent exhibition of the work of world-famous photographer Edward Steichen.

Currently there is an exhibition by the photographer Christophe Van Biesen, a Belgian photographer and artist, of his landscapes of Luxembourg and from his many trips all over the world called ‘Home and Away’.

Arriving in Luxembourg in 2008, he developed a speciality in photographing the natural and urban landscapes of his adopted country. Over the course of his many travels around the globe, the artist has also been able to take a series of photographs depicting landscapes and cities abroad. The varied aesthetic of these landscapes aims to highlight our planet’s diversity and beauty: from the vast landscapes of the North American continent to Asian megacities, via Iceland, France, Italy and numerous other destinations; without of course forgetting Belgium, the artist’s birthplace.

It will appeal to all travellers and landscape photography enthusiasts and is at once dreamy, exciting, impressive and inspiring. Beyond the photographs, the artist also seeks to convey a message that is dear to him. In a world that is opening up more and more, we, as travellers, must take responsibilities by reducing our ecological footprint. Sustainable tourism is key to preserving our planet for the future generations.

We will have a guided tour of this exhibition by Christophe himself. This will take place on Wednesday March 25th at 11am. We will meet at 10.45am to ensure that the tour starts on time.

This guided tour is free, but we do need to provide numbers, so please register with Clare at events@blc.lu if you would love to  join us.

Discover the current exhibition shown at the Contemporary Art Gallery “Am Tunnel” at www.bcee.lu, section “Discover BCEE”.

An hour’s walk in the Walferdange area followed by “drinks” at a café,

Monday 16th March

We will start the walk at 9.30 am from the foyer of Delhaize supermarket, Walfer Shopping Center, 2 rue des Romains, Walferdange and aim to stop at a café at 10.30

International Women’s Day

The BLC would like to celebrate International Women’s Day and invite you to join us for cake and tea/coffee at the home of our treasurer, Janet Macey on Monday March 9th from 10am to 2pm. Your committee will be baking, but if you have a favourite cake you would like to share, you are welcome to bring it along too.

We will be organising a collection of underwear for the charity Smalls for All (www.smallsforall.org). Smalls for All is a Scottish charity which collects and distributes underwear to help women and children in Africa and the UK.

They collect new or ‘gently worn’ bras which can be any size, including sports and nursing bras, but not teen, cropped-top style or bikini tops. (By ‘gently worn’ they mean bras that are in good condition and still have good wear left in them.)

We all have those bras that never really fit properly and that we just don’t use or know what to do with so please come and recycle them with us to donate to this charity.

In addition, we will also collect donations of new packets of pants (underwear) for them. All you have to do is buy a packet of ladies’ or children’s pants and bring them to the coffee morning. They must be new and while they collect all sizes, those they need the most are for children aged 3-15 or ladies size 8-14. And while they collect all colours, the ladies’ pants in greatest demand are black – in full brief, midi, mini or high leg (in the smaller sizes).

One of our committee members will be driving back to Scotland at Easter and we hope to squeeze our donations into her car so she can deliver them for us!

We will also have a book sale of second-hand books with all the proceeds going to our charities this year, so please come along and browse.

All are welcome and we look forward to seeing you there.

Please contact events@blc.lu or treasurer@blc.lu for further details.

Pipsqueaks – Morning

Pipsqueaks is a group for parents to get together with their younger-aged children for a sing-along session at a member’s home, or sometimes we organise meet-ups somewhere outside for some fresh air and a run-around. Newcomers always welcome.

It’s a very relaxed morning where the mums get to chat and drink coffee… we also sing a few nursery rhymes so that we can pretend we’ve really come for the kids rather than to socialise and get a caffeine hit! This is a really fun group that we are keen to keep going.

We’ve also created a new group on Tuesday afternoons called Coffee, Cake and Play so that our ‘graduates’ can still meet up. All ages are welcome and many older and younger siblings will be coming too. If the children want to we will also sing some nursery rhymes.

Please plan to arrive in time for a 9:45 a.m. start so parents with school-aged children are able to collect them from school.

Thank you very much!
