the 2017–2018 Board of alumni
The Board seeks to establish platforms to contribute to SOTA. A key aspect of this is working with SOTA to connect Alumni with current students, supporting them in their SOTA education experience. The Board also seeks to build a close-knit community, create networks that will continue to exist outside of SOTA, bring together artists and patrons, and encourage mutual support and collaborations. Biennale elections are held to determine the Board of Alumni. Check out our portfolio to see what we've been up to.
