A Roundtable mentoring session with:
Felipe Ignacio Noriega (Mexico/The Netherlands)
Business and funding are difficult issues in the arts and specifically for young professionals. They are a necessity at Steunbeer. We see culture as a very unique business in comparison to other sectors. We look at the similarities but also at the special characteristics that cultural businesses have. Funding is a necessity that we can overcome together based on generosity and collectivity: acknowledging each other instead of only nurturing our individual careers.

Co-founder of Steunbeer, Amsterdam Chamber Opera, Bo is Burning and DTMF Signaling – groups associated with podium art, looking for innovative forms of inter-disciplinary collaboration and dramaturgical narrative. Felipe graduated cum laude from the Conservatorium van Amsterdam and has been awarded the Young Art Fund Amsterdam 2015.
