The Graduation Show 2020 will take place at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie buildings from 26 until 30 August 2020.

The Graduation Show presents the work of almost 155 graduates from all over the world. They have completed their four to five year Bachelor Fine Arts & Design at one of the fourteen departments. The exhibition marks both the end of their study and the start of a professional career. 

Due to Covid-19 measures, it is necessary to book a ticket for a specific date and start time in advance. Book your time slot online from 12 August onwards on our website

More information will follow soon.

Please note:

The health and safety of our visitors, students and staff always comes first. By following our safety and hygiene protocol, and that of the National Institute for Public Health and Environment (RIVM), we try to make your visit to the graduation show as safe and enjoyable as possible. Thank you for protecting yourself and others.

To ensure that everyone can stay 1.5 meters apart, visitors must reserve a start time on a specific date by making an online reservation. Unfortunately, it is not possible to make a reservation by phone call. 

If you have cold or flu symptoms, a fever and/or shortness of breath, stay at home. You and members of your household are welcome when you have been free of symptoms for 24 hours. For a description of symptoms check the RIVM through this link.

Also we would like to ask you to consider to make a donation for the Berlagefonds. The Berlagefonds is the school fund of the Gerrit Rietveld Academie. It supports students when they really need it. With this fund, the academie finances extra endeavours and special investments and expenses that are not or only partly subsidised by the government. Donations to the Berlagefonds are now particularly welcome as we will need extra funding to support our (international) students, who in many cases have been financially affected by the Covid-19 crisis and who desperately need help to continue their studies.

When you book a time slot for a visit to the Graduation Show, there’s an option to buy a donation ticket of 2,50 euro. Or you could transfer your contribution to: IBAN NL76 INGB 0656 9109 76, in the name of Berlagefonds, Amsterdam.

We are looking forward to welcoming you!
