Paula Crabtree new rector at KHiB
Last night, we received the good news that Paula Crabtree, ELIA board member and artistic co-director of the NEU NOW Festival, has been elected Rector of the Bergen National Academy of the Arts. The announcement was already on the KHiB site this morning:
Paula Crabtree is elected new Rector at KHiB. Johan Sandborg is new Pro-Rector
Paula Crabtree has been elected as new Rector at Bergen National Academy of the Arts for the period 2010 - 2015. She got 58,4 percent of the votes. Crabtree is a qualified Artist and Anthropologist and is currently Dean of the Dept of Fine Art. Johan Sandborg, Associate Professor at Subject Area Photography, has been elected as new Pro-Rector. They will take up their new positions on 1 August 2010.
- The Academy needs a Rector that is strong, open, enthusiastic and who listens to the entire organisation. The Rector needs to continue the significant development the Academy is currently showing in art and design research, the quality of study programmes, its role in international collaboration and the part it plays in our society. The previous period of rectorship was characterised by institution building, so the next should focus on consolidation and continuing to improve on the best of what we have, says Paula Crabtree.
