EAP intensive Course Bucharest

Start date: 11/05/2018

End date: 25/05/2018

Location: University of Art and Design Bucharest


The EAP course Bucharest May 2018 will be centred around heritage, urban spaces and participation. The main activities will take place in the National University of Arts Bucharest and in ARCUB – The Centre for Culture of the Bucharest Town Hall- it is in the historical centre of Bucharest. Through a series of site visits and cognitive reflections, the course will address topics revolving around heritage, participation and the construction of identity. By the reactivation of what seemed sacred and distant, the world seems to be rediscovered and the common space regenerated.

Sociologists, architects, artists, art historians and political activists will be invited to present their point of view on participatory practices in the arts as living instruments of socio-cultural regeneration. Heritage belongs to the present and by activating it, the institutional walls can be taken down, and the spectator or citizen is able to appropriate, manipulate and transform it. This course looks into the democratization of heritage, bringing with it a reconceptualization of conservation and its uses. It is necessary to include the individuals in the discussion of the objects and practices that construct and maintain their own identities.

EAP intensive course in Amsterdam

Start date: 02/06/2018

End date: 09/06/2018

The EAP Course in Amsterdam in June 2018 will specifically focus on peer-learning and horizontal knowledge exchange and thereby building an alternative and safe space. Practitioners from various disciplines will develop their understanding, their knowledge and their perspective on participatory art practice in a highly horizontal method. In this sense, all participants will be teachers and learners; everyone brings in their own experience in a facilitated exchange between one another. The construction of the programme and decisions during the week will be done collectively, opening up issues of the process of participation as the participants will participate in their own process of participation.

On the other hand, most of the activities will be held within the walls of Castrum Peregrini. By taking advantage of the safe and closed space, more open and free discussions are possible. In a way, Castrum Peregrini will work as a pressure cooker where the participants will live, exchange, debate, cook and share ideas for a week. By these means, a network of practitioners and thinkers will inevitably be strengthened, but also solutions for collective problems can be individually addressed. These solutions intend to later become part of a collective domain by opening the doors and sharing the results of this experimental way of learning, communing and living.
