Our agency specializes in the areas of consulting, project management and artist management. The name ‘artsprojects’ recalls of our origins from 30 years ago. Back then we operated exclusively in classical music management and the organization of concerts. However, since then much has happened. Today our services are also sought after in other areas such as project management for tourism and sports, as well as corporate events. Demand for our consulting expertise has considerably increased since the start of artsprojects. Consulting is now the main emphasis of our customized services, as is the development of digital media. All of this is the result of the organic development of our product offerings.Kristel Josel, CEO
Maria João PiresPiano
Maria João Pires is one of the most renowned pianists of our time and performs in the most important concert halls world-wide. Since 1970 Maria Joao Pires has dedicated herself to reflecting on the influence of art on life, community and education, and in trying to develop new ways of implementing pedagogic theories within society. She has researched new forms of communication that respect the development of the individual, as opposed to the destructive and materialistic logic of globalisation. She brings this philosophy to the workshops she holds in Japan, Brazil and Europe.
