Graduation Show 2019

Thursday July 11th was the grand opening of our annual WdKA & PZI Graduation Show 2019!

The evening kicked off with a speech by our dean Jeroen Chabot and very special performance by Saturners -  music theatre collective, alumni Codarts. After this performance the party started with music by the Ping Pong Club.

The production of the opening night was made possible by Juliëtte Dumas, Ivana de Jong en Josephine van der Poel ( second year Leisure & Events Management) from Huiscontainer.

Ladies you've done a marvelous job.



Until 23.00, people had the chance to wander around and view the graduates' work. There are over 200+ original projects waiting to be seen. Are you lost? Prepare your visit with the help of our wayfinding tool on your mobile. Go to and search for the graduates' names, Practices, Bachelors, Masters and topics and decide for yourself what to see. Graduation Show is open until July 14th
