For this online event St. Joost School of Arts and BredaPhoto join forces. We will start the afternoon with an impression of the graduation work of the department Photography, Film & the Digital. Fleur van Muiswinkel director of BredaPhoto will later on join the conversation to talk about the best of times, the worst of times. Together with the newly graduated we will talk about their work, how the future will look like especially for young makers and the perspective they have after graduation. Storytelling is an important value for the newly graduates as well as BredaPhoto. How do we tell stories nowadays? And how important is a platform for young makers and vice versa? The evening will be moderated by Marc Prüst. Join in online on nowshow.nl or via the YouTube channel of BredaPhoto.
