EDUCATION: HIGHER EDUCATION
Nieuw Dakota accommodates contemporary art in the form of quality arts projects, which are relevant locally, but also nationally and internationally. The exhibitions are accessible, easily to overview, and Nieuw Dakota is located in an extraordinarily dynamic area: the NDSM wharf in Amsterdam North.
The approachable character of Nieuw Dakota makes it an open and readily way for visitors, including children and youths, to come into contact with contemporary art and also with artists, curators and others. A meeting with an artist or curator usually leaves a lasting impression with (younger) visitors. Furthermore, contemporary art portrays besides reality also fictive worlds, or comments on society. By reflecting on this during a guided tour, a discussion evening or an educative workshop, space is created for alternative perspectives with which to view the world.
(Art school) Students:
Nieuw Dakota regularly receives groups of (art school) students for guided tours or a meeting with the exhibition curator, sometimes in combination with a studio visit. Nieuw Dakota aims to give students an insight in the creation process of the artist and the creation process of the exhibition, thus preparing students for (their own) professional practice.
