Beginning with the winter semester 2019 the Alexander Tutsek-Stiftung supports the renowned Dutch art academy Gerrit Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam. The financial backing allows the academy to offer additional workshops by guest lecturers and to acquire necessary equipment. The support is part of a large support program that the Alexander Tutsek-Stiftung initiated for glass schools as well as glass departments at art academies in late 2015. Read more about this support program and other supported institutions.
