Performing Public Space
Master in brief
The international Master Performing Public Space (PPS) is designed for artists from a variety of art disciplines, who currently focus on public space as their artistic environment. This blended-learning program (online/on-campus) is breaking new ground in investigating public space as a backdrop for artistic expression, intervention and research. Creatives with a background in theatre, dance, circus, music, fine arts, architecture, digital arts and graphic design are welcome to join this program.
PPS is a one year online program (60 ECTS), including three times two weeks on-site bootcamps in-the-field training. The main objective of this program is to support the development and production of your current work in progress, dealing with public space at large.
We offer three bootcamps of two weeks a year.

Innovative online / on-site program
PPS offers you an enriching & flexible learning environment, which directly relates to your current artistic work in public space. The teaching methods are designed to be highly adaptable. Individual coaching, paired with 24/7 access to the online learning platform, together with on-site bootcamps held in Tilburg, the Netherlands, will make you part of a creative international community.
The online learning platform will provide you with learning and research materials, an e-mail service, the ability to up- and download documents and share videos. You will be able to access a forum space in order to post questions, start discussions and interact with your peers and mentors.
We are looking for goal-oriented artists that are currently developing artistic work or research in public space. We encourage artists who work independently, but are willing to communicate in dialogue and in co-creating. Students will be asked to reflect on their individual works in progress, and to co-investigate intervention practices in public space throughout the program.
