3 KIEM GRANTS within the ARIAS network


May 2018

The Gerrit Rietveld Academy/Sandberg Institute and UvA received an NWO/Kiem as well as a SIA/Kiem grant for the Zeeburgereiland project in which a local platform will be set up to study the role of art in processes of commoning. Adeola Enigbokan and Rene Boer will be leading the research starting in June 2018.


February 2018

Lector Cultureel Erfgoed Hester Dibbits has received a KIEM-grant to develop a toolkit for professionals and academics for research into heritage.

Academics and professionals collaborating on the examination of heritage are in need of a common, practice-oriented vocabulary. Dibbits proposes to develop a Multisensorial Toolkit to connect abstract terms from the academic field to the daily practice of heritage practitioners. Dibbits applied for the KIEM as a member of the Erasmus School of History, Culture and Communication, part of the Erasmus Universiteit Rotterdam (main applicant).
