We are very proud of our Rietveld alumni, and consequently would like to know how all alumni have been doing since graduation. That is why we would like to extend a warm invitation to our alumni to become a member of our newly established Alumni Network: The Rietveld Society.
We look forward to welcome all our alumni to The Rietveld Society and are pleased to offer all new members The Rietveld Society Button (see image), an exclusive design by Graphic Design students Nina Paim and Remy Alban Valton.
The Rietveld Society
The Rietveld Society is developing a platform to improve communication and possibilities for exchange between all members of the worldwide alumni network. Being connected to The Rietveld Society could for instance lead to (guest) teaching positions at the academy, interesting group projects/exhibitions both in and outside of the Netherlands, and other types of collaborations or initiatives.
Additionally, our aim is to learn more about the career development of the Rietveld alumni both in and outside of the art and design world.
We, therefore, have teamed up with the University of Amsterdam to gather information about the specific career and artistic development of Rietveld alumni. By knowing which kind of careers alumni undertake will help the Rietveld Academie keep the program in tune with the ever changing artistic climate, which in light of the current debate in the Netherlands is more relevant than ever.
If you have questions about The Rietveld Society, ideas for events, or in case your contact information changes (email and/or postal address), please don’t hesitate to contact Bieneke Bennekers at firstname.lastname@example.org.
