Added Value is officially a business term. It is the profit for the firm and its stakeholders after all the costs and taxes have been paid. It is the price that the product is sold at minus cost of producing the product.
Instead of referring to business models, the NetworkWeek’s 2015 theme ‘My Added Value’ is about You as a person and an individual photographer or artist. As we are all unique, we are all able to add value. The question is, do you know your talents, do you know in what way you are unique? Do you know what your added value is as a colleague, as an artist or as a photographer?
In an oversaturated profession like photography it is crucial to know your added value to find your place in the field. No matter how big the concurrence, your added value is your ticket in!
Besides focusing on you, we also hope to get your mind started and take added value to a larger perspective, raising questions like: Why did I choose photography? In what way does photography add to the cultural field compared to other mediums? And considering recent cuts in government budgets on arts: What is the added value of art? Is it money down the drain or has it value for society?
A lot to discover this years NetworkWeek. We will launch the theme with a sizzling program on Monday, be ready that day between 09:00 and 17:00. Also this day we present the timetable per student for the entire week. Don’t miss it!
