Spacemakers is STRP Education's newest program. Spacemakers challenges students to think and to rise above their expectations. These students work together in Eindhoven with an artist, and together they create an artistic project.
Students from secondary education, mbo, and hbo can participate. For some months, they are STRP creators, organizers, programmers, and producers. The artist inspires the group and chooses with them what they are going to do within STRP's year theme. Together they work towards an art project in which an audience is involved in their thoughts and ideas around the theme, for example with an art installation, film screening, or workshop.
From October 2021 February June 2022, students work with artist and social designer Imke Sloos from their own project space in the center of Eindhoven. The Spacemakers Hangout is the meeting place and available every day to work, think, and organize! During STRP Festival the space will be part of the program. This is the perfect opportunity for participants to show their project to STRP Festival attendees!
Imke Sloos is an energetic social designer from Eindhoven who graduated from the Design Academy. Driven by outspoken ideas, dreams and stories, she often works as a mediator between people or groups to achieve improved situations. Imke makes an effort to get to know the other. This results in projects with value, projects that start small and end big.
Spacemakers is supported by Fonds 21 and the Cultural Participation Fund
