Marijke was born in Ghana and grew up in Senegal and Italy. She joined Europeana in 2016. Her focus is the Europeana 280 project. She has a background in Fine Arts and spent a year exhibiting art around the Netherlands with one international exhibition in Finland which she is quite proud of. When she is not coordinating the 280 project, no one knows what she is up to. Not even her friends. She is a bit of a mystery.
