From March 5 until April 8 the exhibition was expected to receive around 5000 students from the Mulo schools from all over Suriname, but unfortunately due to the COVID-19 virus the schools in Suriname closed on Monday March 16 and will stay closed at least until the end of April. The organizers of the exhibit hope to start again with receiving schools in November 2020.
