The Hague – For aspiring artists, designers or photographers, The Royal Academy of Art The Hague (KABK) Open Day is a good start in preparing for a professional career in art or design.
This annual event gives prospective students the opportunity to take a tour through the studios and workshops, and to meet the tutors, staff and current students of the acclaimed academy. There will also be live demonstrations and educational workshops, as well as a meet and greet with the alumni and a showcase of the final projects by recent graduates.

These include Anne Kranenborg, who questions the nature of objects and structures in the absence of the people they were designed for and by; Vyasa Koe, whose work with salt explores the natural geometry of mineral formations in the context of architecture; Eva Verberne, Eva Verberne, who created a town called Narrators Bay that investigates the unexpected moments in architecture which results in infinite scenarios and personal stories; and Noortje de Brouwer and Nienke Sikkema, whose project The Feast of Inequality addresses discrimination based on physical appearance by intervening in the tacit protocols of a refreshment bar to provide unequal treatment without apparent reason.
