The program is designed to bring together and disseminate critical knowledge and address relevant challenges of today, implementing new models and possibilities in art education and artistic collaboration.

This year, for more than two weeks, participants will attend 14 different courses that theoretically and practically reflect and challenge ongoing regional history and its connections to broader art and political/societal developments. Through situations that escape the normal limits, the program will seek to intertwine knowledge and (re)position the region of Southeast Europe in relation to its international and global coordinates.
