Today, a unique guide is published that has been created specifically for all new graduates of ArtEZ University of the Arts, about life as an artist or performer in the first after getting your degree.
The publication, 'Work it, Make it, let me guide you after ArtEZ', created in collaboration with ArtEZ alumni, follows the chronology of life in the first year after graduation. It includes inspiring stories about the wealth of possibilities, searching for a new daily rhythm, raising your profile, putting a price tag on your work, working for free, facing doubts, jumping in at the deep end and networking, and numerous other experiences.
Since 2013, around 50 home bloggers have written about their life after graduation, entrepreneurship and innovating. Their blogs were posted on the website of the ArtEZ Art Business Centre. Authors Jante Wortel, Nick Felix and Annemieke Dannenberg, three graduates of the Creative Writing course, identified the common tread in the blogs, gathered the best quotes, and added their own experiences.
For any by alumni
The publication was designed by STUKK Design, Kim Waterlander and Marjanne Kuipers, alumni of the Graphic Design course in Arnhem. All ArtEZ finalists will receive the publication this year along with their degree certificate.
“Once you've graduated, a new chapter of your life will start. This handbook will help you on your way. We can't tell you how to live your life as an artist. But you can read and find out how others have done it”.
