De Belofte 11

De Belofte 11 is about to begin!

"Kunstliefde" organizes the 11th edition of De Belofte, the talent program young artists. This year lots of promising talented students graduated from the art schools in The Netherlands

What is the program about?

It starts with a Pop-up exhibition with 20 selected talents. The Public, Kunstliefde-members and a professional jury will decide during the pop-up exhibition which 10 artists may follow the program unto the final exhibition in June. De Belofte 11 Pop-up exhibition will be held from Thursday 7th until Sunday 10th of January 2016.

The follow-up process with 10 artists consists of three-weekly meetings in which we will discuss each other's artwork and make plans about the final exhibition in June 2016. In addition, we invite at these meetings people who are related to the art world; collectors, curators, exhibit builders, gallery owners, lenders and so on. They will explicitly be invited to tell something about their expertise and passion, but also to talk about the work and the working method of the participants. The final exhibition in Kunstliefde is scheduled from June 4th to July 3rd 2016.

Our expectations of the participants:

- Commitment: when you're in, you're in, it's a mutual investment.
- Availability for the Pop-up exhibition: Building on Wednesday, 6th January, exhibition from Thursday 7th to Sunday 10th of  January 2016.

After being selected (follow-up program):

- Participation in the three weekly meetings on Thursday nights from January to May 2016.
- Availability for the final expo from 4 June to 3 July 2016. (vernissage, sometimes host during opening hours) 

We offer you:

-an inspiring and constructive feedback process to support your further career.
-meetings with different people related to the art world.
-an experience in organizing an exhibition.
-an opportunity to show your work.
-an enthusiastic team.

At Kunstliefde, many people are involved and most of them are doing this voluntarily. There is a small budget available we would like to use to built up the exhibitions and the program. So travelling to Utrecht is at your own costs.
