Nieuwe Vide program 2017

From 1st of May 2015 till 31st of January 2019 I was director/curator at Nieuwe Vide art space in Haarlem (The Netherlands), working there 3,5 days a week (on a freelance basis). Nieuwe Vide is a combination of exhibition space and (25) studios. The studios are rented by artists, animation studios, graphic designers, copy writers and so on. www.nieuwevide.nl

As director/curator my tasks a.o. included:
– budgetting
– applying for funds
– drafting contracts for freelancers
– composing a program
– composing and leading a team
– editor-in-chief of a new magazine
– communicating with stakeholders
– curating and designing exhibitions
– stimulating press coverage.

I was founder of Nieuwe Vide’s Journal of Humanity as well and came up with the Focus Artist-concept. I also started the Soup Corner in 2016 (weekly eating soup together with people form the neighbourhood and people that hire a studio at Nieuwe Vide).
