That is just a typical assignment given during the Orientation Year at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie!
And good news: the Orientation Year is still open for applications for this year!
We still have two rounds of applications coming up in September. The link to register can be found here: https://rietveldacademie.nl/en/page/956/apply-contact.
