Are you an undergraduate or graduate student interested in learning more about exciting projects and possible career paths in the field of Dutch and Flemish art? Designed by students for students, Center for Netherlandish Art (CNA) Student Sessions connect you with various experts in Netherlandish art and history and give you a chance to engage in conversation with them in an informal setting.

Sessions are guided by student concerns and questions, prompting experts to reflect on their current work as well as their academic, personal, and professional journeys. This unique forum gives local and international students the opportunity to connect with one another, opening new pathways for innovation, access, and interdisciplinary collaboration.
