Landing page first SEA Foundation website, Jan-Willem van Rijnberk, 2010
Launch new website
Our first website was designed in 2010. Over the years, as SEA Foundation’s activities grew, our internet presence not only became shattered, it also became outdated. In 2015, SEA Foundation was awarded funding from Province Noord-Brabant in the “Impulsgelden programme” to build a new web presence. With this funding, we were able to follow through with all the newest website developments and standards. And this is the result. This new digital platform makes is easier for us to reach out to our audiences and present our activities and events in a ‘state of the art’ way.
On November 1st, 2016 we are proudly launching the first phase of our digital and responsive platform. At this stage the website will only be in English. Over the course of the next couple of weeks the Dutch addition will follow. Meanwhile, new features like education and courseware will be added.
Support and funding
Because of funding we were able to call upon our network and deployed a web-team to research the requirements for the foundation’s platform. Riet van Gerven asked artist and designer Linda Beumer to sketch-up the new design. Secondly, she asked web developer Bob Driessen to execute the programming for our new website.
Hence we were off: gathering all the information about our activities, events, videos and Residency Programme and started building the new platform. And as extra we were able brought in new educational instruments to support the development of the artist’s practices too.
Again, we have had much support from our network helping us add the content. We also express gratitude to Whitechapel gallery in London UK, to help us with the transition and process as a whole. Without this support, a digital presentation like this, would not have been feasible.
