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.
