Leo says goodbye!

The academy policy interrupted my contract. Political circumstances made me decide not to come back next year. The last seven years I had a great time at the KABK and want to thank everybody; students and staff for all we've learned from one another and the inspiration given. I don't like farewells - so see you all soon somewhere else. I wish you all the best life can give! Best regards, Leo

Subsidie valt weg, passie gaat door Mijn project gaat in op de huidige bezuinigingen op kunst & cultuur. Podiumkunstenaars verliezen hun podia, maar verliezen ze daardoor ook hun passie?

Ik stel de kunstenaar van nu een vraag: Ben je een slachtoffer of is jouw passie niet afhankelijk van je omgeving
