Break Out: Cultural leadership – Across the Board – Witte de With Center for Contemporary Art

August 17, 2017, 18:00 - 18:30

What does it take to be able to think, work and operate across domains? Witte de With Center for Contemporary Art is looking to bring together a select group of 20 ambitious professionals: talents from the fields of contemporary art, politics, and business that are on their way to change their respective fields. From artists, art professionals, architects, and designers to entrepreneurs, consultants, policy-makers, and diplomats are all invited to apply for Across the Board 2017.

Across the Board is a long-term platform for the development of culture through cross-disciplinary exchange. Led by visiting tutors – significant agents in the fields of art, business, and politics – a select group of promising professionals will work together to locate (and re-evaluate) the shared values between their respective domains and to confront the opposing philosophies and methodological frictions that arise through their exchange. The programme, with a series of masterclasses at its core, will attempt to co-formulate a more pluralised and nuanced trajectory, to be activated within their independent domains. Towards the long-term goal of intercultural exchange between the professional participants, Across the Board aims to not only fuel the foundation of connections during the programme, but to also provide a lasting platform of exchange between its future alumni.

Learn more about Across the Board 2017 and about this years tutors including Viktor Misiano (Museum Director and writer, Moscow), Jeanne Gaakeer (Justice at the Appellate Court of The Hague) Tom Cummings (Judge Business School, Cambridge), Tirzo Martha (Artist; co-founder of Instituto Buena Bista – Curaçao
) and Hedy d’Ancona (former secretary of state, minister, senator and member of the European Parliament) during this Break Out session with initiator Yoeri Meessen (Associate Director Witte de With, Rotterdam).

Witte de With is Rotterdam’s platform for groundbreaking exhibitions; global discourse through symposia and publications. This is your space for international art and debate.
