ABOUTI grew up in different places throughout The Netherlands in a very internationally orientated family that considers art and culture a fundamental part of life. As a result, I am open- and globally-minded towards life and people.
This reflects my approach towards project management; I believe in creating possibilities and optimizing opportunities in close collaboration with artists and art organisations. By nature I am spontaneous and proactive, and as I am operating in a field I am truly passionate about, I believe there is always more to learn and more to do.
EDUCATIONI earned my BFA at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy from the Beeld en Taal department, which is the department that focuses on Fine Art as well as creative writing and investigates how they relate and intersect. In 2019 I completed a MA of Museology at the Amsterdam University of Arts, Reinwardt Academy. Museology is the study of museums and heritage and their role within society. It explores the history and activities of museums, including curating, preservation, public programming, and education. Museology is not just about what happens within museum walls; it studies heritage production at large and places the museum in its local and global contexts. It covers theories and concepts from art, history, ethnic studies, archaeology and anthropology.
My research thesis was about the role of ‘in-between spaces’ in modern and contemporary art museums and how they can contribute to inclusivity.
