Rijksakademie Pioneers is a vibrant network of young and inquisitive professionals with an interest in new developments and experimentation in the arts. Pioneers and resident artists form a 'smart community' with the Rijksakademie at its centre.
The Pioneers program offers the unique opportunity to peek in the artists’ laboratory and to witness and participate in experiments and try-outs initiated by the resident artists. Pioneers support the Rijksakademie with a donation of € 500 gross per person. *

"Rijksakademie is an exceptional institute where talented artists forge important relationships and are provided with the time and means to reach their full potential. It's a unique and open environment where artists deepen and accelerate their work. Often when I'm traveling abroad I meet artists I admire and discover they too have taken part in the residency program. I am a firm believer that art has great importance to society and to how a country profiles itself and therefore it is with great pleasure that I support the Rijksakademie."
- Maurice van Valen, Rijksakademie Pioneer, collector and partner at Law firm Holland van Gijzen
