Martijn Pronk

Head of Digital Communications at the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam (NL)

Housing the largest collection of Van Gogh paintings in the world, as well as hundreds of drawings and letters, the museum inspires and enriches people by making Vincent’s life and work and the art of his time accessible to everybody. The Digital Communications team is working on the museum’s website and digital products and services and is responsible for social media. Digital is crucial in the museum’s ambition to connect the world to Vincent, the most famous of all Dutch artists. To expand on its position among digital front runners in cultural heritage, the Van Gogh Museum is currently developing a new digital strategy.

Before coming to the Van Gogh Museum, Martijn worked as Head of Digital and Publishing at the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam, where he led the development of the award-winning Rijksstudio concept.

Martijn is a member of the Europeana Foundation Governing Board and the jury of the Best Social Media Awards.
