Editorial Board
Funded by the Editorial Board

Extra Intra is a website initiated by the Editorial Board of Intercurricular Programmes at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie & Sandberg Instituut.

  • Extra Intra provides an overview of present and previous intercurricular initiatives at the GRA & SI.
  • Extra Intra functions as an online space for the previous and current intercurricular, student-led platforms to share their research.
  • Extra Intra is where the editorial board publishes the content and outcomes of its projects, such as its readers and its essay series.

Some questions the Editorial Board asks are: How can we encourage and support discourse and practices that depart from and disrupt the institutional norm? How can we further develop and support student-led pedagogy, providing a space for topics that are not addressed by the main departments? What does the future of art and design education look like?

The Editorial Board’s focus on projects and research outside of existing departments serves to highlight and support interdisciplinary thinking and making that has the flexibility to respond to current urgencies felt by students and the wider community. These urgencies may be material, political, theoretical or otherwise, and give students the opportunity to play an active role in shaping their education, learn valuable skills such as writing applications, organising events, and working with peers in the professional field. A key intention of the board is to facilitate communal and sustainable working structures, and help students to further their interest and experience in experimental pedagogy.

The Editorial Board of Intercurricular Programmes was established in 2019 as one of the 9 Quality Agreements, and is being funded until the end of 2024 to develop small-scale intercurricular education within the academy. Since 2019 the editorial board has supported 13 student-run intercurricular platforms, been developing an active website promoting and archiving all intercurricular events happening in and around the academy, published 2 readers, and continues to commission an essay series on the future of art and design education, and organise various events and symposia.

Crossfade: sonic somatics

During this special evening the Embodied Knowledge Bureau and aux), two student-led educational platforms operating at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie and Sandberg Instituut, will come together to share their practices. They will look back on their year of work researching, thinking and making around sound and the body in art and design education.

This event invites you to experience their space of exploration first hand: presentations by both platforms will be followed by performances and techno-meditation sets by guest artists, which will then dissolve into an open party.
