Welcome to ADRIART
A pilot run of the MAP programme has started in the last study year. For the year 2013/14 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 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.
I have just arrived from one of the many ADRIART mobilities which are a part of our Media Arts and Practice MA programme. Some of them are obligatory depending on one's carrier module, others optional, but each of them is different and gives you an intense experience of its kind. It is not only getting to know new technologies, reading theory, making a new project. It is mostly getting to know yourself through collaboration with other participants - and here, I mean students and mentors.
