Who we are

IK, study association of Arts, Culture and Media is a student organisation located in the city of Groningen. The association aims to promote professional and non-professional activities for students in the Arts, Culture and Media programme, as well as informing them about their studies, the future labour market, possible pathways after their studies and to promote mutual contacts between students. We seek to achieve this by forming and strengthening own individual identities and friendship bonds between the members of the association, organizing activities to promote these, holding meetings to discuss household matters and organizing an annual General Members Assembly.
