The idea is to make a space for social encounters evolving around a homemade bread – oven situated on the grounds of the school. Over the course of 4 friday evenings, selected participants of student body and faculty will run the oven and share their knowledge, recipes, and bread, for an interested community. The bread, events & building process will be documented and turned into a publication.

As part of their graduation from the Dirty Art Department in Sandberg, they are creating a cinema in the Bijlmer. The lease of the space has been extended and the money is going towards sustaining a permanent cinema space and organising regular public screening programs for students of both Rietveld & Sandberg, giving them an outside audience.

An on-going program grounded in the student community of Sandberg instituut, with the goal of generating social interventions inside the community in which relations can be built upon. Made up of 3 main actions: mobile kitchen (weekly distributions of lunch); private interviews and events by others (public moments to open up a personal perspective on the common environment).
A community based, peer to peer beauty station of mutual care. 5 individuals will be selected as resident beauticians (dealing with head, body, hand, face, soul), and will occupy the Glass Pavilion. All school members are invited to come in pairs or groups, and with help from resident beauticians each of them takes turns in having and giving a treatment- promoting amateurism, peer learning and intimacy.

Having both gained experience in metal casting but not being able to develop further due to the lack of foundry within the school, these students have built their own Foundry in their working studio in Zwanenburg. The Foundry is managed by them but is open for all students to come and realise their metal sculpture ambitions!

The group are designing and making official Rietveld graduation robes. The intention is to have a outdoors photo studio during the graduation show, in which all graduation students can take an official graduation photo in the robes. The funding covers the cost of printer and printing, meaning that students can be given their images for free.

A 3 day ‘situation’ organised by basic year students and held in the Glass Pavilion may 7 th onwards, involving screenings, lunch, music performances and lectures.
Concerned with the lack of nature and greenery in the school’s grounds, they are making a nomadic (Easily movable) garden. Having spoken to Erik in the canteen, there is the incentive to grow all of the herbs used by the canteen. They will also be building a worm composting system for the canteen as there is currently no structure in place for them to separate their green food waste.

Launching a student run webshop based within the academy, that would facilitate sales of works by Rietveld and Sandberg students. The webshop will have a few different categories – such as painting / drawing, print, publications, ceramics, jewelry, textile– and we will have a monthly intake and distribution schedule that is accessible to all, meaning that everyone can apply to have their work put up in the webshop. The shop aims to help showcase the many different disciplines in the school, bridging the Rietveld world / outside world, through selling their work on their own terms, with any profits going directly to them and their work being presented in an honest, accessible way.

This 26, 27 and 28 of April 2019, four students from different departments went to ‘Libros Mutantes’ (Madrid’s Art Book Fair) to represent Rietveld and Sandberg by bringing and selling their publications. The purpose of this trip was to show the skills that students develop during studies, outside of the school and to give an opportunity to the students to make connections with people who have the same interests from all around the world.

In collaboration with NeverNeverland, a 5 day video workshop aimed at the youth will be facilitated during the Visual Arts Festival Zanzibar. The results of this workshop will then be screened at De Punt. A collaborative project which will create new international art platform connections for current and future Sandberg students involved.
