Portfolio — Merle Plachta
As an accomplished art manager I bring a combination of skills to each project. I have a keen eye for goal setting as well as practical implementing and controlling skills. Whether I'm copywriting, budgeting, planning or adding all the nitty gritty details to a project proposal, I always strive for a well balanced cooperation between all different stakeholders involved.
A large part of my work experience has been spent writing press releases, articles or curatorial texts and taking care of online and social media communications. Long ago I pushed myself to understand how good texts come to life, what makes them function and how they can be improved. I demand a lot from myself and that includes making sure the communication of the projects I work on are clear, simple and efficient.
My academic background has given me the know-how with regards to solid research and my passion for intercultural matters has pushed me to be an advocate for an art scene that is OPEN FOR ALL. This also reflects in my MA thesis on Intercultural Audience Development in Creative Industries - this paper investigates how art can be a measure of inclusion for refugees and immigrants in our diverse societies.
