Sculpture Riek Stienstra

One of the activities in 2014 was a special gathering for the donors of Friends of IHLIA where officially a sculpture in memory of Riek Stienstra to IHLIA was transferred. The Friends of Schorer have donated this gift, which was unveiled on the IHLIA plaza and can be admired there from now on. Even though closing Schorer was a great loss, the sculpture has found its proper place at IHLIA. In its capacity as the ‘memory’ of the LGBT community, IHLIA can keep alive the significance of Riek Stienstra’s work and at the same time, inspire everyone who fights for equal rights and egalitarian treatment.

 

During the gathering, Josée Rothuizen gave a lecture (in Dutch). She was a friend and colleague of Riek Stienstra during the period in which Riek was the director of the Schorer Foundation. Afterwards, she unveiled the sculpture.
