Hi there! Let me introduce myself! My name is Isabella van der Gaag, a Rotterdam based Arts enthusiast and graduated student with a BA degree in Arts and Culture Studies. I have worked as an Online Marketing Manager at Bertus Distribution (Music Distributor). I was responsible for the online marketing strategy of the record label Butler Records, the web design for the record label as well as the design of information sheets about new releases (among others). The last couple of years, I have spent some time as a volunteer at multiple Dutch Festival organizations as well. I love working in the Arts and Culture sector!

I also love to travel. I have already been on Erasmus exchange to KU Leuven Belgium as part of my BA Arts and Culture degree. During this period I travelled a lot through Europe, I have been for example to Denmark, Luxembourg, France, and Portugal. My current trip goes to South America, Cuba, Mexico, and the United States (New York City). You are able to follow my (travel) adventures on my blog.

Because of my passion for Arts and travelling I want to improve my intercultural communications skills. In September, I will therefore continue my study with a Master in Cultural Anthropology and Development Sociology. My personal goal is to make this world a better place for everyone around me. Music and arts can help me to reach this goal because these cultural expressions can play an important role in both education and relaxation in all parts of society.
