Are you interested in conservation issues around plastics?
Each year the SBMK organises an annual meeting, the SBMK Day. This year it will take place on Wednesday the 14th of November in the Centraal Museum in Utrecht. The subject of the meeting will be plastics and it will be given in English. It is therefore possible for international guests to go to both events. A combination ticket for both the SBMK Day and the Acting in Contemporary Art symposium (SBMK Summit) will cost €250. A combination ticket for students and SBMK partners is €125.
