Wed 4 Jul

Yesterday's night was a blast! We have opened our Graduation Show that, for sure, will inspire and challenge your views on different themes. Lots of visitors came this year, creating a magic atmosphere that made the Opening Night such a fun and incredible moment.

The evening kicked off with a fresh free beer at the café De Willem, along with the music and performance by the Ping Pong Club. Until late hours, people had the chance to wander around and view the graduates' work and enjoy the summer weather outside the academy with a burger and a drink.

During the Graduation Show, our Academy turns into a maze where getting lost is a must.

There are over 300+ original projects waiting to be seen, every single one is unique due to the numerous possible paths of our study programmes.

Are you lost? Prepare your visit with the help of our wayfinding tool on your mobile.

This year, many graduates have (among others) researched and brought up important themes as identity, ecology and sustainability, the future of the world, life and death, revolutionary use of technology and the impact of the internet and the social media on our perception and everyday lives.

There are so many ways to approach art and design. The graduates of 2018 did an outstanding job in portraying and bringing innovation to the field of their future careers.
