The Purpose of Life student project selected for Simultan festival 2013

The project "The Purpose of Life" produced by Lavoslava Benčić, Iva Musović and Dunja Danial (all MAP/y2-students at the University of Nova Gorica) was selected by the jury of Simultan festival 2013 in the video section. The 9th edition of the Simultan Festival will take place from October 10-12 in Timisoara (Romania), under the theme Popular Unknown. Simultan is an annual festival dedicated to international media art and artistic experiments, creating a bond between different media.

Call for applications to Media Arts and Practices Master programme in Nova Gorica 2013/14

Candidates should approach with a project idea or clear interest in a specific creative realm. In an international atmosphere students will develop their final project and theoretical thesis, all in close interaction with mentors, guest teachers and peers. Embedded in international mobility and collaboration networks, the Media Arts and Practices master was designed for flexible lifestyles and manifold careers within the EU-supported project, including regular workshops on specific sites with referenced partners in Austria, Croatia, Italy, Slovenia and elsewhere.

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.
