Can Gerrit Rietveld Academie and Sandberg Instituut become radically inclusive structures?

An intra-curricular initiative is working actively between and beyond the structures and discourses of the academy to unsettle the Rietveld and Sandberg from the roots up, supporting existing initiatives, while also developing outreach programs, drawing in new perspectives, and making the context of the academy more inclusive to other voices, minds and bodies.

In 2018, Unsettling Rietveld Sandberg began working towards a policy on inclusion and diversity in the academy. Every Thursday the Unsettling Station is open for conversations in person; for newsletters, questions and updates please email: unsettling[at]
