Head of the Mobility & Advice team
After working as an executive for several international cultural projects, Jelle joined DutchCulture as the head of the Mobility & Advice team, which includes TransArtists, the Mobility Info Point, and Creative Europe Desk NL. What inspires him the most is providing cultural and creative professionals and organisations with the best possible advice on the wide range of provisions and opportunities to collaborate internationally. Jelle is also a Panel Member of the European Commission for the Expert Panel for the European Capitals of Culture 2020-2033, as well as the Chair of the Board of Opera Spanga.
Before joining TransArtists I worked at the European Art Biennial Manifesta, where I coordinated research, the archive, and artistic projects in Amsterdam, Palermo, and Prishtina. I studied Art History and European Studies (BA) and Critical Performance Studies (rMA) at the University of Amsterdam. I also occasionally work together with artists and writers when organising exhibitions and publication projects. In 2019, I was a resident at SOMA in Mexico City. Since then, I have regularly visited Mexico, where I have worked on various art projects.
