Vacancy: Educational Instructor Photography Workshop

The Royal Academy of Art, The Hague (KABK) educates students to become independent and self-aware artists and designers with investigative mindsets and unique visual and conceptual abilities. Students at the KABK get plenty of opportunities to hone their creativity. They can work in one of the many workshops, borrow equipment and make use of the knowledge and expertise of the workshop supervisors.

The Photography Workshop consists of several fully equipped photo studios including specialised equipment, photo printers, an analogue black and white darkroom, video facilities and a rental service. For the replacement of a colleague, we have a vacancy for a handy alumnus or alumna.
