During his bachelor and master in sociology at the University of Amsterdam, Jasper (1992, NL) developed a broad set of research skills to investigate social themes. With his tight connection to the sociological magazine Sociologisch Mokum as a writer and editor he aimed to spread knowledge about social fenomena with a wider audience. In addition, he has always been active in the cultural landscape of the Netherlands. He took acting lessons, made plays with his own theater group, of which one was awarded in 2014 with the Student Festival Award and founded a new arts and culture talent festival at the University of Amsterdam in 2015. Combining these expertises and passions Jasper now works for New Heroes as a researcher and creative producer on various national and international projects.
