Event description

Description

We are proud to invite you to the first in line of an alumni lecture series. With this series of events we would like to inspire current Media Technology students and bring together alumni. The goal of these events is to bridge the gap between Media Technology students and alumni from different fields. Our first event will bring us to the field of creative entrepeneurship.


Are you an alumnus?
There will be a way to catch up with fellow graduates – and to see what the graduates-to-be are up to. Furthermore, you as a graduate could be an example to us peewees, and therefore your presence is very much appreciated.


Are you a student?
So you have had an interesting time spent with art, technology and a collaboration of both. Maybe only one semester, maybe four or more. No matter what, undoubtedly you thought at some point "What's next?", Alumni events group to the rescue! We will provide you with some thought triggering, horizon broadening, synaps stimulating lectures.


Event 1: Creative entrepreneurs

Ella Keijzer
Ella Keijzer will tell us about her career path, including her business Fietslabyrint revolving around virtual bike tours. What started as a study project, Fietslabyrint evolved to a multimedia installation to keep people moving over more than 250 virtual bicycle paths. It offers a great solution for elderly and disabled people, who can’t go outside on their own, to discover the world.

Sylvain Vriens

Secondly, Sylvain Vriens will take the stage as he will give us some insight in what it is like to be a freelance interaction developer, artist and teacher. Sylvain worked on a wide range of projects for clients like Nike, Apple and Dior. His goal as a creative entrepreneur is to create fun, immersive experience where the technology feels natural and becomes invisible at the same time.
