Hello, I'm
Julian Rieken.
I'm a manager, communicator,
and curator.

I’m a passionate creative arts manager, curator and visual communicator. I am driven by a deep motivation to help increase access to the arts by providing cultural institutions with the right tools to find, reach and engage their current and future audiences.

I am currently building up a new arts foundation that will focus on new and creative forms of arts funding as well as a think tank, platform and conference for innovation in classical music. I am a former Project Manager at Bertelsmann Stiftung, Kulturkreis der deutschen Wirtschaft and HyperWerk. I have more than 6 years experience working with clients, agencies, foundations, festivals and orchestras.


Driven by Art.

Through the incredible and rare opportunity of having been able to spend most of my life living abroad on three different continents, culture has become a mode of communication for me, a sort of global language that has helped me understand, adapt, appreciate and move freely between different cultural realms.

Perspective has transformed art. A fresh pair of eyes and ears can do the same for any institution. Through my years of moving between different cultures,  I can help provide that change of transcultural perspective.

As a musician I can relate to the needs and goals of the most integral members of any cultural institution: its artists and performers.

Through my masters degree in Arts Management and my work experience in that field I can help create meaningful events and ensure you find the right venues, partners, artists, funding and sponsors.

As a graphic designer I can determine the right visual language to formulate the mission and vision of your institution both internally and to your target audiences.
