Melvin Moti, artist, core advisor and jury member
Susan Gloudemans, director strategy & development
The speed dating will be one-on-one sessions of 15 minutes to:
– screen the portfolio and c.v. on eligibility for the Rijksakademie
– talk about workplan, ambitions and reflect whether Rijksakademie is the right place for the artist and if the timing is suitable
The Open Call for Rijksakademie closes on October 1st, but Rijksakademie is extending the application deadline for Academy of Fine Arts graduates attending the speed date until Friday 7 October. The speed dating feedback event is cost free and open to graduates from the Fine Arts Academy.
