A message from our PAA Europe President

Dear PAA-E members

Museums are closed. All events have been cancelled until 1 June as part of the Dutch Corona-Covid19 measures.

These are difficult ever evolving times that call for flexibility. The museum team has been looking for alternative dates for holding the PAA-E meeting in Leiden. We are now also exploring possibilities of extending the ‘A Sea of Islands’ exhibition closing deadline from 23 August to the end of November 2020. The hope of a new end date together with the probability of limited travel options for attendees, mean that we are now thinking of a November meeting for the PAA-E. We will try and keep you updated as soon as we can.

In the meantime, I am wishing you all good health and good spirits.

Wonu Veys
President PAA-E
Curator Oceania, National Museum of World Cultures, the Netherlands​
