Rembrandt in Amsterdam
In 2012 Vanessa moved to Amsterdam and graduated with her MA in Design Cultures. Before this, she was in Caracas, Venezuela, working as an architect. Trying to find parallel lines between such different contexts, she uses her diverse background to deal with questions of how arts, architecture, language and design influence society - and vice versa. She also has a special interest in hands-on experiences and a playful approach to learning. Since she moved to Amsterdam she has gained extensive guiding experience focusing on the culture of the Netherlands, from the man-made drying of the land to the civilization around it and how this society is expressed within the arts. Her interests in urban developments also lead her to be continually active as a symposium lecturer and author.
Anita studied Art History at the VU in Amsterdam and has vast knowledge about Dutch (Jewish) history and art. She gives tours in Dutch, English and Hebrew and is specialized in working with people who are visually impaired, families, and people within the autistic spectrum. Coming from a Jewish family, the traditions and her family history made her move to Israel. After living in Israel for 4 years, she returned to Amsterdam. She has also been active in the Amsterdam Jewish community as a board member of the Jewish schools.
