‘Creating pioneers’ is the Willem de Kooning Academy’s mission. Pioneers because the academy is not there to reproduce what already exists, but to put the applications and techniques available in the near future into practice now. Our students themselves are the creative pioneers the creative sector so badly needs. The Willem de Kooning Academy’s role is to help our students to become pioneers.
Our creating pioneers – students, tutors and alumni – are succesful in their profession and keep winning several awards and nominations. Please find a number of our winners from the past couple of years on the right hand side.
