Marketing and Communications Manager

Melanie Hulsebosch

I recently joined the IABR in the capacity of marketing and communications manager. In addition, I create programs and meetings for people from all walks of life, with storytelling and music as common denominators. My aim is for us to exchange stories about who we really are, rather than get stuck in opinions about how the other should be. As a communications professional, I like to work at the intersection of strategy and realization. I enjoy taking on assignments that allow me to contribute to livability and diversity. Previously I worked for the State of Fashion biennale and the contemporary art exhibition Sonsbeek in Arnhem. In 2021 I settled, with my dog Jimmie and my yurt, in the green landscape of the Land of Maas and Waal. Although I could never do without the creativity and diversity of a city like Rotterdam, I prefer to live as close to the earth as possible. I am delighted to be able to contribute to the mission of the 10th edition of the Rotterdam Architecture Biennale, because I am convinced that we are already transitioning to a livable future in which the connection with our heart and our ecological system is very self-evident.’
