SCHUNCK Museum seeks creative young people and adults for the new editions of talent development programmes.
At SCHUNCK, the focus is on pushing boundaries. Pushing boundaries is possible at any stage of your life. Every year, SCHUNCK enables various young people and adults to discover and develop their own creative talent. For the new editions of Driver's Seat and the Badeklasse, SCHUNCK is again looking for creative young people and talented adults who want to participate.
For the Driver's Seat team 2021-2022, SCHUNCK is looking for creative and enthusiastic members. Driver's Seat is a group of young ambassadors (16-23 years old) who spend a year at SCHUNCK Museum 'behind the scenes'. In 2022, SCHUNCK Museum will host the Keith Haring: Grace House Murals 1983-1984 exhibition. Members of the upcoming Driver's Seat edition will have a front row seat at this iconic exhibition. In addition, the group will delve into the new collection exhibition Smoke and Mirrors. They will go on a cultural working visit, create their own exhibition and get to think about collection policy and audience programming. Driver's Seat members discover their own talents and are creatively challenged. They learn a lot about the ins and outs of a contemporary visual art museum.
For the Badeklasse 2021-2022, artist David Bade and SCHUNCK are looking for creative talent. A unique opportunity for adults who regularly make their own art and would like to be guided by an experienced artist. Since 2020, artist David Bade, in cooperation with SCHUNCK, focuses on meeting and coaching creative talent. He does this in the form of the Bade class: a learning programme tailored to everyone's level and interests.
Participants are taken through the creative process of an artist and receive monthly intensive coaching during personal sessions and a series of workshops, assignments and discussions. After a year, participants will have gained a lot of practical experience, worked on their portfolio and built up a network in the art world.
