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 will strongly focus on short location-specific module runs and 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.

2 - 11 April. FilmForum is an international festival devoted to cinema and the contemporary visual arts that brings together scientific research, the dissemination of culture, and exhibition shows. From the very beginning FilmForum has aimed at discovering and developing the most stimulating and innovative artistic areas and research fields (including videogame studies, postcinema, porn studies, film heritage). FilmForum takes place in Udine and Gorizia and it offers conferences, meetings, workshops and screenings.

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.
