event - Mastermundo Creative Conference

Posted by Irad Lee | Mon Sep 17th 2007 3:38 a.m.


Todaysart Festival, 22nd September, The Hague, The Netherlands.

On Saturday September 22nd the Royal Academy of Art (KABK)'s brand
new study Interactive Media Design (I/M/D) will present Mastermundo
at the TodaysArt festival with 'Mastermundo'. Twelve exceptional
Masterminds from the 'Pool of Masterminds' invite you to hear them
speak about their passion. They will share their knowledge with those
interested, because it is their passion that brought them where they
are today. Visitors can enjoy these 'fruits of passion', and pick
their brains for some of their inspiration. Bring a spoon!

The 'Pool of Masterminds' comprises of exceptional people in varying
disciplines, from architecture to experience marketing to designers,
both from The Netherlands and abroad. Mastermundo's concept and
speakers follow the internationally oriented art education at the
KABK closely, and students find themselves in the center of society.
I/M/D students develop medium-independent concepts, and are educated
to be a new generation of designer: one that crosses disciplinary
borders, ventures into new areas of the working field and can make
clever links and connections. I/M/D functions as a meeting place for
creative domains, languages, cultures etc., but above all as a place
to meet like-minded people.
