My name is Marieke Warmelink, I am a Dutch socially engaged artist and founder of the platform 'Women with a Voice'.
I graduated with two BA’s; Cum Laude in Graphic Design at UWE, University of the West of England and Fine art and at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy Amsterdam, in the Netherlands.
With my work I create socially engaged projects to make visible underlying social theme's of society. I make use of performances, films & interventions as well as painting. The level of participation is important in my work, yet my work remains autonomous.
Over the past eight years I have specifically been working for genderequality and initiated the platform 'Women with a Voice'
With this platform I create awareness for genderequality through lectures, exhibitions, workshops, events, discussions, and coaching. This is offered to businesses, city councils and one to one coaching.
It has been my pleasure to be a guest teacher at various universities such as; Columbia University NYC, US, Pace University NYC, US, Artez University, Zwolle, The Netherlands, Gerrit Rietveld Academy Amsterdam, The Netherlands and Shiv Nadar Universiity, department of Art Design and performing arts, school of humanities and social science, Delhi, India, among others.
In the artfield I worked as a ‘facilitator’ at the Rijksakademie of Beeldende Kunsten in Amsterdam, one of the world’s leading top international art institutes.
I now teach on regular basis.
