ArtEZ Institute of the Arts

ArtEZ is one of the major art institutes in The Netherlands. The capital letters stand for Arnhem, Enschede and Zwolle, the cities in which the school is located. ArtEZ stands for an internationally recognised standard of quality in art education. Graduates are able to contribute to constant renewal in art and quality in society. 

Our education enables students to function at a high level as creative artists, applied artists or as teachers. Graduates are able to contribute to constant renewal in art and quality in society. ArtEZ’s education also draws strength in a broad sense, from the disciplines of visual art, design, architecture, music, dance and theatre. 

Mission ArtEZ stands for an internationally recognised standard of quality in art education. Graduates know their position and the power they hold. They have developed their artistry and craftsmanship and know how to imbue their art with societal meaning through working with others. They are prepared for professional practice at the highest level and in an international context. 

Vision At ArtEZ, art is given space to be of significance to others: for individuals, groups and organisations. ArtEZ feels it is partly responsible for an attractive and stimulating cultural environment as well as for the cultural infrastructure in the eastern Netherlands, in particular its locations in Arnhem, Enschede and Zwolle. 

A certain tension is required in art education. Issues of society or professional practice are sometimes focused on short-lived trends or immediate practical applicability. However, professional practice ultimately benefits from encouraging and guaranteeing the autonomy and individuality of students. These form the basis for the development of artistry and are a prerequisite for truly innovative art. It is in this field of tension that ArtEZ provides education.
