This year the Piet Zwart Institute Masters courses will offer programming intended to provide year-2 students with practical knowledge for their current and future professional practices. Each month, we’ll offer workshops that provide resources for transitioning from school to the professional realm and insights into practical issues faced by artists and designers. The program includes range of info sessions, visits, and talks, each relating to research, funding bodies, artist and designer initiatives, residencies and post academic institutions, work and life in the Netherlands, and community. In these sessions you’ll gain insights and strategies to apply to funding applications, residency opportunities, finances, and other practicalities. Practical knowledge will be complemented by visits with practicing artists and designers engaging in discussions relevant to fields of research and practice and excursions will connect students with the broader creative fabric and network of Rotterdam and the Netherlands.
