Lunch Lecture: Alumni Talk

Interested in learning from a former student from the UT? Then join this lunch lecture with Peter Riezebos that we organized together with Ideefiks, the student association of philosophy. It is taking place on the 1st of October between 12:30 - 13:45 in the Ravelijn building. We will also provide you with a free lunch!

About the Artist:

Peter Riezebos is an artist, writer and scientist. Between 2006 and 2014, he studied Psychology, Communication Studies, and Philosophy at the UT. Not bad for a former MAVO (general secondary education) pupil with depression and diagnosis of Asperger’s and ADHD. From an early age, his fierce associative abilities allowed him to translate his experiences with these conditions into paintings, drawings, and poems. In his book ‘From mavo to Harvard’ (2014), he recounts how he transformed these learning obstacles into abilities to shine in education. In this book, he also makes recommendations for better alignment between education and the individual student. It was no surprise to anyone that - after his time at the UT - he left for Shanghai to do his doctoral research in educational technology, which he did not end up completing. His paintings, which followed neo-expressionist traditions, created a stir. Nowadays, his work can be found in private collections and galleries all over the world.
