Share your plans: organize a masterclass, workshop or other Huizinga-activity

Our goal is to give you the best education opportunities possible. That requires a demand-driven programme, for which we need your help. Do you miss anything in the Huizinga Institute’s programme? And do you have ideas for a ReMa-PhD Masterclass, Workshop, Atelier or course? Or an activity focused on community/platform building?

We greatly welcome initiatives from ReMa-students and PhD candidates, and have budget available to support several activities each year. Organizers may receive ECTS credits for their efforts. To submit your proposal, please fill out the application form and send it to coordinator Annelien Krul ( She is also available to discuss the possibilities and to answer any questions.

We look forward to hearing from you!
