Arttenders keeps in touch with trends in the world of entrepreneurs, governmental issues and the cultural field in the broadest sense by being part of R’damse Nieuwe, an initiative of Rotterdam Partners.
R’damse Nieuwe is the community for young, entrepreneurial, forward-thinking Rotterdammers. As part of Rotterdam Partners, R’damse Nieuwe strives for ongoing improvement in the city of Rotterdam. The connectors of R’damse Nieuwe form the Young Economic Board of Rotterdam. We all come from different backgrounds as entrepreneurs. In this role we connect young Rotterdam to the executive board of the municipality, the members of Rotterdam Partners and each other. Also we consult both the municipality and Rotterdam Partners on matters concerning the city. On top of that we are continuously lobbying and networking for relevant partnerships and policy-changes.
Since 2016 Siobhan Burger holds the cultural chair at R’damse Nieuwe. Within this role she is responsible for culture and keeping close ties to the cultural field in Rotterdam in the broadest sense. Also she is a member of the IABx 2017, the biennial International Advisory Board, this edition with a focus on Culture, that takes place in April 2017.
