My job as artistic and general director is curating, marketing and coordinating the team. As a photographer and project manager I have been running startups and festivals for about ten years now, next to studying some of that time. The best thing about art? it lets you get away with murder – if you catch my drift.
It was back in 2014 I joined the team as head of the board of directors. A lot has changes since then: a lot of people worked very hard to develop the non-profit into something more autonomous and professionaly organized and I am happy to have been part of the journey.
Nowadays I spent the year going through phases; making plans, applying for funding, getting the office team together, finding partners and sponsors, programming and then – my favourite part – welcoming our volunteerd. This is where it all starts coming together!
I love talking about photography and seeing how everyone picks up the new stories behind the pictures each year. I am also amazed how fast things can move when people feel motivated to reach one goal: to build an even more ambitious exhibition than the year before. And have as much fun as possible in the meantime.
