In my position as Talent Scout for the Stimuleringsfonds Creatieve Industrie, I was asked to select 4 young talented artists for funding. These artists fall just outside of the focus of the fund and to them are seemingly difficult to find. However, I know so many “unseen” talented people that I decided to let 14 of them pitch their ideas in Soho House Amsterdam in front of the Stimuleringsfonds. This way, they were all seen by the fund, while at the same time being able to network with each other.
I am super proud and congratulate Yavez S E Anthonio, Giorgio Toppin, Youssra Benaya and the team Diek van der Plas and Anyah Ny Sealey with their funding by the Stimuleringsfonds Creatieve Industrie. Together we showed how much hidden talent is present in Amsterdam. We believe that outstanding talent, deserves the opportunity to grow, and are happy to support good ideas financially. Shoutout to everybody for making it a night to remember and shout out to our master blaster jury Angelique Hoorn Mngmnt, Souf Kinani and Aukje Dekker ♥️
No more we-can-not-find-them!
