I'm a cultural entrepeneur, with a history of Theatre management and organisation, very practical and experienced. I have been working on public private partnership of public space for 10 years, taking the cultural angle as a basis. The result of the combined effort of cultural institutions, entrepreneurs, inhabitants and local government, combined with a sustainable focus, is a succesful cultural urban square: the Schouwburgplein in Rotterdam, the Netherlands.
Which additional experience/skills can people of Placemaking Europe reach out personally to you for?
I am involved in several cultural and societal activities and am an accurate organiser. I combine a feel for structure and governing with knowledge of the cultural field and entrepreneurship.
I have a number of diverse board functions in the theatre field and am participating in several projects in Rotterdam concerning the civic economy and environmental issues.
