Known in Danish as “Aftagerpanelet”, literally the “Board of Recipients”, the purpose of the Advisory Board is to advise the rector on the quality of the study programmes and their relevance to society. The board also offers advice on the development of new and existing study programmes and on the development of new methods of teaching and examination.
Each year, the chairman of the Advisory Board provides an account of the board’s activities. This account is included in the annual report published by the academy.
In their report, the Advisory Board must include their comments on the current job prospects for the academy’s graduates.
The Advisory Board is set up for four-year periods at a time. The chairman of the board is appointed by the Minister for Culture, while the other members are appointed by the chairman and the academy rector.
The current Advisory Board for the Schools of Visual Arts consists of:
- Museum director Holger Reenberg
- Artist Kirstine Roepstorff
- Gallery owner David Risley
- Artist Mikkel Carl
- Artist Søren Taaning
- Critic and editor Pernille Albrethsen
