Welcome to ADRIART

Call for applications to Media Arts and Practices Master programme in Nova Gorica
Media Arts and Practices (MAP) study programme to begin also in Rijeka

pilot run of the MAP programme has started in the last study year. For the year 2014/15 there are two Calls for applications: at the University of Nova Gorica School of Arts as well as at the University of Rijeka Academy of Applied Arts.

Within the ADRIART project participating the partners are developing an international master study programme in contemporary arts and applied practices MAP - Master of Arts in pratice, aiming at the areas of audio-visual arts (film, animation, photography), inter-media arts (spatial, new-media, trans-media) as well as (historical, theoretical, critical) arts discourses.

The complete two-year implementation cycle strongly focuses on short location-specific module runs and will promote participation of best mentors and students from the region and around the world. Among four countries and in five languages the programme will discuss site-specific (demographical, social, cultural, ecological, migratory etc.) topics in interdisciplinary ways, while stimulating multi-cultural academic exchange and graduates’ development towards self-sustainability.

MAP in MOTION Ljubljana - July 14, August 18, September 3

As closure of the ADRIART project and in the context of Media Arts and Practices master study program, the ADRIART partners are organizing MAP in MOTION festival
, which is being held separately at different locations. The Ljubljana edition of the MAP in MOTION festival will see on July 14 seen a symposium and exhibition and in late summer a screening (September 3) and a dance-theatre show (August 20). The symposium will present specific progressive parts of the internationally oriented master programme in Media Arts and Practices. An important part of the symposium presents the artist talk, where artists-students are given the possibility to present their work. In the last part of the symposium we invite to an open discussion »Studying in art – Studio in the city«, and later in the evening to a guided tour and vernissage of the exhibition of works by students from University of Nova Gorica School of Arts and Academy of Applied Arts of University of Rijeka in Alkatraz Gallery.

Towards a MAP degree

At the beginning the student will either bring a project idea, or define concrete interest in one of the creative environments, either contemporary arts or intermediafilm or creative industries. This is where (s)he will alongside peers start the »Progress Track« under support of local and international mentors, and under review of expert committees. To build competences around the student's project idea or field of interest, s/he  can choose from several Carrier Modules (substantial theory-supported pratical projects) along the stages of Explore!Define!, and Focus!. Simultaneously, the student combines several competencies »… in Practice« by selecting diverse smaller courses from the realms of Techniques or Discourses on offer by the entire programme consortium. Courses are delivered on different locations in Croatia, Slovenia, Italy, or Austria and are all supported by an online learning environment. Possibly combining different creative enviroments in the beginning of the programme, the study experience gradually converges towards the final Master Thesis Project.
