On a few Thursdays a year, Centraal Museum keeps its door open until late to welcome more art, local creatives and curious crowds to a special event: Centraal Laat. During these evenings, the exhibition spaces are filled with live music and performances. Guests are invited to get involved through workshops and lectures. Designed in close collaboration with Utrecht locals and newcomers, each Centraal Laat draws from the topics of the current exhibition to offer to the guests a new, refreshing experience.

Jamaya Kadijk

Jamaya Kadijk, a 24-year-old creative all-rounder, was born and raised in Utrecht. She is the proud owner of Joozy Art, a company where she works as an artist, graphic designer and content creator. At 22, she decided to travel to the United States on her own to live there for a few months and explore her art. It was there that she came up with the idea of combining her Afro-Caribbean roots with both historical and contemporary events to create interactive art. In this way, she brings art and culture lovers together and inspires people to look beyond just the artwork in front of them. Her goal is to collaborate with makers from different backgrounds and organise exhibitions throughout the Netherlands with her interactive art. In this way, she wants to encourage viewers to meet, create social connections and promote intercultural communication. Especially for Centraal Laat, Jamaya has devised a project called 'Portrait Talks', in which she guides several groups that have in-depth conversations about the stories behind her portraits.
