Hi, my name is Thinkie, welcome to my blog!
I'm a student in cultural studies, a museum enthusiast, a scrapbooker and an art journaler. I love to travel within Europe and I enjoy photography. You can read more about me on my homepage.
And in Dutch I enjoy:
I live, I love, I create, I capture, I learn, I enjoy.
I'm a presenter
In the summer of 2011 I spoke to F., who co÷rdinates volunteer efforts at Museum Meermanno. I told him I wanted to work in a museum after my studies, but didn't know what kind of work I would like. Working at a museum as a volunteer would help me get insight in the processes going on behind the screens and learn what I wanted to do.
Flash back to the summer of 1986. Chalon-sur-Sa˘ne, France. Curating my first exhibition, consisting of local finds.
I suddenly get it. The link between all these things I feel passionate about. They're all about presenting something to others in an attractive (and sometimes educational) way. I enjoy both the organizational process as well as coming up with content and thinking about the visual side of it. And then bringing it all together and share it with others. I always knew I was a collector, but now I know: first and foremost, I'm a presenter. (in a non radio/tv way, that is ;-) ).
