The Study Trip to the Netherlands is happening in less than one month and we are excited to share that the programme has now been finalised. Our director Laura Boxberg and our Communications and Projects Assistant Sonja Koivisto went on research trips last month, visiting all the spots our group will be heading to in Rotterdam and the Hague, before the programme culminates at Amsterdam Art Week.

“I’m eagerly looking forward to the upcoming four-day program in the Netherlands. There are a lot of places to visit, so we will definitely learn a lot from each other and share information, but it will also be an exciting opportunity to meet and network with artists and other visual arts professionals!”, says our Communications and Project Assistant Sonja.

The program includes visits to the following:

Amsterdam Art Week
