AKT’s creativity comes to life within the PLAKT! This year’s PLAKT members are all experienced people within committees. We will provide four issues of AKT’s popular magazine for you, one in each block. Writing about anything – television, film, theatre, new media, culture, Utrecht, politics, cooking – there will always be articles you’re interested in! By following our Instagram account, @plaktofficial, you might get some sneak peeks on what we will write about in each issue. You might even get to contribute yourself, so keep an eye on the socials :). Next to the magazine, this year’s PLAKT will continue with the podcast that started last year. So be sure to listen to our podcast sessions as well, which will be released around the same time as the issues. We are looking forward to introduce you to our creativity!
We present to you our five members of PLAKT 2023-2024: Trix (Editor-in-Chief), Jelle (Secretary), Frank (PR-Official), Joris (Head of Podcast) and Ginny (Designer).
Hi! I am Trix, 21 years old and this year’s chair of PLAKT. I am in my third year of Media and Culture, and also in my third active year within AKT: I have served on various committees and last year I was on the board of AKT. Now I am happy to be a normal student once more, who enjoys the occasional drinks (cocktails and wine, but also tea) with friends, and we might end up dancing. I love making my home a cozy place, by cooking and baking (the house smells amazing), lighting candles and playing some music. My passion is traveling, and I hope I will be able to see a lot of the world. Keeping up with my travel blog is part of the fun. That is why I am really looking forward to writing more articles together with my fellow committee members and filling four beautiful magazines for you.
Hi everyone! My name is Joris and I am a third year’s student Media and Culture. Right now, I am doing my minor at the VU in journalism and will be part of the PLAKT team for the second time. I really like telling stories and because of that I am one of the members of this wonderful committee once again! After being in the secretary seat last year, I will be head of the stunning podcast we launched back then. And of course, I will also please you with stimulating articles again. Curious about the kind of articles can you expect from me this year? I really like television shows, watching movies in the cinema and travelling all around the globe. Besides that, I would like to find this connection with our own discipline by relating the articles to the world of media. Last but not least, I really like to search for interesting people within the media field for critical interviews and interesting life stories!
Hi there! My name is Ginny and I’m the Designer of Plakt! I’m a third year’s Media and Culture student and I’m currently doing the minor Journalism at UvA. I like to read magazines about fashion, culture, media and niche interests, like Vogue, Dazed or i-D magazine, but I also like to talk about those topics myself. After being in Feessie last year which was really fun, I look forward to create festive arcticles this upcoming year! The type of articles you can expect from me will probably be very diverse, since I tend to hyperfixate on things that suddenly catch my attention. These create an urge in me to explore the topic until I get to the bottom of it, but overall I really love painting, concerts, dancing, going to the cinema and visit museum exhibitions. Moreover, I want to use this opportunity to interview interesting people, create a fun podcast and tell relevant stories in this magazine with my friends from the committee 🙂
Hi! I’m Frank, this year’s PR-official within PLAKT. Last year, I was in the board of AKT, and I enjoyed my time so well that I decided to do another committee year. The PLAKT is new to me, because I have little experience in writing or creating articles. I tried out something recently, when I wrote an article on Sex Education for the final issue of the former PLAKT. It was received well and that’s why I decided to sign up. This year I will be in charge of the PR and the Instagram of PLAKT, so make sure to follow us on @plaktofficial 🙂 Besides PLAKT, I like to spend my time on going to the gym – where I also recently started my new job – going to the cinema or going out with friends. So catch me somewhere in the city centre 😉
Greetings everyone, I’m Jelle! People may know me as the grandfather of AKT and this year I will take on the position of secretary at PLAKT. After quitting journalism studies twice, now is the time to take revenge in the profession through PLAKT. I am a real media tiger and devour everything that has to do with it. A podcast, film, series or documentary, I enjoy watching and listening to it and I will certainly include this in PLAKT. I’m really looking forward to it this year and hope to provide you with a nice magazine.
