Fresh ideas from museums around the globe in your inbox each week
In the twenty years that Femke has been active in the museum world, she has worked on more than a hundred exhibitions (on ancient and contemporary art, photography, design, history, popular culture) and other public-oriented projects. This enabled her to develop a vision on public programming and collection building.
She developed her leadership and management experience as a department head of Learning and Public Programming and by running her own successful company for almost 10 years. She is working at this department and as a member of the Management Team at the Royal Picture Gallery the Mauritshuis (The Hague, The Netherlands) for four years now. This includes projects in the field of accessibility for people, programming for people suffering from dementia, lessons for senior secondary vocational education and an extensive outreach project with/for schools and community centres.
She takes the lead within the museum to work with the Diversity and Inclusion code and strategy. Within the museum the team developed a policy that they are now converting into concrete projects through a program.
This edition of MuseumNext she will take you on a journey into the new field of programming in the digital Mauritshuis Museum together with art therapist Fi de Wit.
