Arttenders is spearheaded by two ambitious women, Faye Ellen and Siobhan Burger. We have been working together for over 5 years and are both passionate about the art world. Both of us recognized the need for disruptive innovators who are eager to question the status quo. A challenge that fits us like a glove!
Arttenders believes in the power of combining skills and passions, in creating new perspectives and making the world a better place through art. We love to exchange ideas over a good cup of coffee. So feel free to reach out!
Faye has an extremely sharp eye for business development and is a master at matchmaking. She grew up in her parents’ gallery, developing a strong affection for and knowledge of the art world. Her personal mission is to create outstanding art projects that make a difference in the (art) world. She is extremely skilled in communicating with both the corporate and the artistic world and has years of experience in making state-of-the-art art projects happen. At her previous position at Mothership, Faye managed prestigious projects such as the permanent 11.000m2 artwork by Arno Coenen and Iris Roskam in the Markthal in Rotterdam, the interactive performance Poldercup by artist Maider Lopez and most recently, Amsterdam Oersoep located at Damrak in Amsterdam by Arno Coenen, Iris Roskam and Hans van Bentem.
Faye gets great pleasure from realizing the impossible and has a thing for excessive colorful art.
Siobhan is the visual and fundraising expert at ARTTENDERS. Her strength lies in visual and textual communication and translation of artistic concepts into cohesive proposals that match the needs of our corporate clients. She is interested in creative financial solutions and crowdfunded her MA degree in New York. While in New York, she expanded her skillset at prestigious organizations such as MoMA PS1, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum and Sutton PR. Siobhan finished her BA in Cultural Studies at the Erasmus University in Rotterdam and Bilgi University Istanbul with honors, and holds an MA in Museum Studies from New York University.
Siobhan is always up for a challenge (she just ran the New York City Marathon) and has a thing for complex projects.
We are always on the lookout for young talent. In our small team we request a lot of independence from our interns. Feel free to respond on one of our ongoing openings or send us an open application to discover opportunities at Arttenders.
