My name is Michèle and I am 23 years old. I have been living in Leiden for 4 years now. Originally I am from Friesland, which is in the North of the Netherlands.I graduated from a BA in art history (in Leiden) and now I am starting my Masters Book and Digital media and Arts & Culture: Contemporary art in a global perspective. So I recon it will be a busy year for me. I am excited though. Mostly because I am very intruiged by how I can intertwine these fields. So I am a student, but I also work in a museum ( Museum Bredius ) in The Hague. I like switching things up and thus besides putting my head only in books I also like to use my knowledge in practice.
I have found, within my BA, that I am very much interested in the combination of art and media. There, of course, is a lot of digitalisation going on within museums and archives, but also in how art is produced (in some cases). Within my BA I have also done an internship for an online editorial. Which was a lot of fun and which taught me about the world of journalism.Languages I speak
| I followed some media courses within my BA art history:
||I expect to learn the basics of coding within the Digital Media Technologies course. I already worked with the programme Wordpress, so I learned to edit and add to websites. I really like puzzling with this. So I hope to learn a lot more about coding and webdesign, if that is how you can call it. I also expect to learn more about the history and background of how websites, codes, and certain programmes became to what they are nowadays.|
