  • Participants

    What do we expect from you?

    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.

    Are you disciplined, able to manage your own work in progress?
    Do you take ownership in your individual learning environment and are you open to new forms of educational methods?

    If you are open to questioning your own work processes and have the intention to increase engagement and impact in public space - join us in exploring boundaries and social territories.

    Strengthen your art career

    Under the mentorship of creative leaders, distinguished visiting artists and scholars, students share their innovative voices and will build distinctive, successful careers.

    We develop the kind of artists who use their voices, their works and their research to enlighten, engage and inspire change for better understanding in our world.
