What is a Saving Card

Each lecture slot and SHADOW CABINETS attendance will be marked on a special student’s Saving Card.

Each slot and Shadow Cabinets event responds to a specific number of points.

Long slots will be rewarded with extra attendance points.

All students of the Rietveld Academie (foundation year, second & third year) except those at Dogtime and those in their fourth and final year have to collect a minimum of 14 attendance points.

What is a slot

Slot is a group of lectures or other activities as indicated on the squares of each Savings Card.

Where can I get a Savings Card

Rietveld students can pick up their personal Savings Card (valid for all 4 days) by indicating their student card at the front lecture desk at the beginning of each conference day.

The student office will announce a location to drop off your Saving Card, one week after the end of the conference.

Important notice

  • Savings Cards are mandatory for first, second and third year students
  • Lecture and Shadow Cabinets doors will close at the beginning of each slot and workshop.
