Famkje Elgersma is a curator in education and currently has finished her Integrated Design studies in Bremen, Germany.

“No text should follow here, but at least pictures or actions, because in principle this is a plea to artistically designed communication.
Art and design is a unique and incredibly valuable form of expression and communication.
Every medium, every kind of artistic expression, be it through an installation, an object, a play, an action concept, etc. has, in my opinion, the potential to reach people. It is a form of communication that connects, points out, provokes, questions and empowers.

I have the desire and hope to shape political, scientific and social issues. There are so many “artificial” boundaries, abstract discussions and opaque processes that are worth pointing out in order to reshape them if needed.
I would like to see transparency, the possibility to recognise and empower oneself.
This is where I believe in the magic of artists and designers. Understanding by designing the (scientific) knowledge and (political) discussions that are kept so abstract. Using the power of reaching people through emotions and senses, connecting and integrating them all equally and making the world a home designed together.”
