Shiobhán McGibbon exploring scents in the Aroma Lab - During her residency at Mediamatic Jada Maij

Meet-a-Maker is a 30-minute session to have a one-on-one talk with artists currently working at Mediamatic. We are lucky to be inspired by the many artists who work and stay with us for exhibitions, residencies and workshops. We welcome you to meet them and be inspired as well!

This Meet-a-Maker is part of Mediamatic's Japanese Knotweed Season program. Knotweed is a fast-growing plant known in Europe for its intrusive properties. What many do not know, however, is that this plant species has a host of positive properties. During the festival we will explore how to live in harmony with this controversial plant.
