The INDEX program is an initiative of Meraki Agency founded to help artists and designers with the development of their artistic practice. By having monthly conversations with our (guest)coaches, we reflect on the work and the issues involved. To work on a strong personal vision, to introduce themselves to the person who can help them further in their career.


Reflection on your practice:

Together we will discuss your artistic practice. We will analyze your current situation, look for the possibilities and write down your goals. Who and what can help you to achieve these goals, and how to reach out for them? Together we search for your personal strategy to answer these questions.

Printed Matter

With the analysis of your practice in mind, you will convert (a part of) it into an experiment in the form of "printed matter" under the guidance of our graphics consultant. The publication, in the end, will be a tool to reach out and expand your network.
