1983 - Queen Beatrix and her Adjutant General, Miss Prinsen, visit the East West Forum, a sculpture symposium with Japanese and Dutch artists participating in Dordrecht, The Netherlands
In the summer of 1983 Lucien den Arend presided over a working group that organized a sculpture symposium. Six Japanese Sculptors and six Dutch colleagues spent forty days making projects. Queen Beatrix opened the symposium and came back a few weeks later to see the progress the sculptors were making. She usually spends a day a week in her studio at the palace Huis ten Bosch where she works on her own sculpture.
