Nominated for Keep an Eye Design Talent Grant 2016

Bron van Doen has been nominated for the Keep an Eye Design Talent Grant 2016, together with 8 other designers from Design Academy Eindhoven who graduated in the 2013-2014 school year. We will be presenting to the jury on the 21st of October, and the final 4 winners will be announced during the official opening of the Graduation Show on the 22nd.

Keep an Eye Design Talent Grant

Since 2010, the Keep an Eye Foundation has been responsible for awarding the annual Keep an Eye Grant, which was presented during the official opening of our Graduation Show. Starting from the new academic year, 2016-2017, the Foundation intends to take a more in-depth and focused approach to its ‘talent development’ objective. This means that the target group will consist of alumni who graduated two to three years ago. An interesting time to stop and consider questions such as: ‘where do you stand at this point in your career’ and ‘how can the Keep an Eye Foundation help you in the continued development of your talent’? Four designers who can come up with a well-phrased answer will be eligible for the ‘Keep an Eye Design Talent Grant’ worth € 10,000.

Attending “Working with Constituents” symposium in Middlesbrough

Between the 8th and 10th Ron, Minsung and Gemma Medina will be attending a 3 day symposium titled “Working with Constituents” hosted at the Middlesbrough Institution of Modern Art(mima) at Middlesbrough, England. This three-day international event, organised in partnership with the L’internationale European museum network, will focus on the possibility of a museum in which the visitor is not a passive receiver of predefined content, but a member of a constituent body who provokes, informs and co-produces programmes. We are invited as The Umbrella network with our project Agents of Change, being one of the constituents working together with the Van Abbemuseum. This symposium is arranged by L’internationale, a confederation of six modern and contemporary art institutions. L’internationale proposes a space for art within a non-hierarchical and decentralised internationalism, based on the values of difference and horizontal exchange among a constellation of cultural agents, locally rooted and globally connected.
