Third stop, Amsterdam with Alison Lasek of ACCA’s public programs. Art is in the water in Amsterdam, circling the city like its concentric canals. Alison will take us on a bicycle tour of the world's laboratory for liberalism – along Vincent Van Goghstraat, through Rembrandtsplein, stopping to smell the tulips and appreciate the Dutch eye for intelligent design.

Enjoy a complimentary regional drink, created by Sipsmith Independent Spirits & Hippocampus Metropolitan Distillery. All in the comfort of the ACCA departure lounge.
