Have you always wanted to know what goes on behind the scenes of a cultural institution? Are you 14 to 21 years old and would you like to convey your enthusiasm to peers?

Marres, House for Contemporary Culture and the Jan van Eyck Academy.

Marres and the Jan van Eyck Academy collaborate on the education program Extended: the youth program of both institutes, where you work on a social art project for four months under professional guidance. At Extended, you research in a team how to make young people use or experience their senses in a different way. How can you make people hear, feel, smell, see or taste something to make them think?

Coached by Anneke Haane, Extended offers you an unique look behind the scenes through your own project. With the knowledge and assistance of curators, scientists, artists and communication heroes, you’ll discover contemporary culture from different sides.
