Reconnecting, recollecting, updating, checking out, indulging in nostalgia, making future plans, strengthening a community,... All that is what an alumni meeting is for. On Saturday 17 September 2011 from 13.00 to 18.00 the first alumni meeting will take place at DasArts, Mauritskade 56, 1092 AD Amsterdam.
These are the alumni, former and current participants and former staff members who confirmed their presence:
Siegmar Zacharias, Alison Isadora, Gita Hacham, Cecilia Vallejos, Janneke Raaphorst, Mirjana Smolic, Alexander Giesche, Emke Idema, Nienke Rooijakkers, Janica Draisma, Maria Kefirova, Bojana Mladenovic, Nadia Tsulukidze, Manolis Tsipos, Lieve Baert, Marijke Hoogenboom, Corine Snijders, Katarina Schröter, Zhana Ivanova, Krishna Kaur, Esther Mugambi, Andrew Fremont-Smith, Jeanette Groenendaal, Tammuz Binshtock, Linda Molenaar, Maika Knoblich, Robbert van der Horst, Tchelet Weisstub, Petra Ardai, Andreas Bachmair, Sjoerd Wagenaar, Pedro Manuel, Marloeke van der Vlugt, Inés Sauer, Steve Heather, Mechtild Prins, Hans Bryssinck, Nir Nadler, Hein Eberson, Julian Hetzel, Roberta Marques, Annick Nevejan, Riina Maidre, Stephanie Pan, Renate Zentschnig, Luc van Esch, Zbigniew Maciak, Edit Kaldor
Join us too!
The programme for this meeting consists of three parts:
We would like to share/discuss with you a subject that is relevant for DasArts at this moment.
We invited alumna Siegmar Zacharias to be the host of this part and to organize a discussion/talk about “SUCCESS”, which was the subject of the Block The Conditions of Success that she and Igor Dobricic mentored last year. Success, it’s a cloud that overlooks every alumni meeting. Let’s face it, discuss it, explore it freely and frankly. And maybe redefine it!
2. Sharing information about DasArts
You are all important ambassadors and therefore we would like to share with you some of the latest developments within DasArts in a quick update.
We would like to focus on the DasArts Trust Fund, that still exists but in a different way. Our current participants don’t receive a scholarship anymore, but pay their entire studies themselves and have to look for their own funding. We are revitalizing this fund through private donations especially for our participants from outside the European Union (for whom studying at DasArts becomes more and more expensive) and to guarantee the international character of our school for the future .
We will collect ideas and suggestions for future alumni meetings.
3. Informal part
Meet & Greet & Drink & Finger food
Hopefully the meeting is a kick off for a new DasArts tradition.
We sincerely hope to see all our alumni, former participants, current participants, new participants and former staff members, on 17 September.
