Presentation of Itinerary Workshop at Specific Locations in Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art Rijeka

Within the Copula project of the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art Rijeka, which organises a series of talks with artists and other actors in culture on the topic of art in the public space, Rijeka mobility pilot Itinerary Workshop at Specific Locations will be presented by APU team members.

The backbone of MAP programme development still active

While the University of Nova Gorica School of Arts has already begun (and is currently finishing) the pilot year of the Media Arts and Practices Programme, the project team is continuing the work on the development. Usually the team meets up at one of the short course run mobilites to be able to "see into" the mobility itself, to constantly (re-) check the methodologies and contents.

Welcome to ADRIART

With Media Arts and Practices (MAP) study programme in Nova Gorica and Rijeka

The Media Arts and Practices (MAP) Master programme is runnning fully at the University of Nova Gorica School of Arts (since 2012) as well as at the Academy of Applied Arts at the University of Rijeka (since 2013). For the year 2015/16 Calls for applications are expected in June.

Within the ADRIART project the partners have developed an international master study programme in Media Arts and Practices, with several Carrier Modules: Intermedia, Photography, Scenographic Spaces at the Academy of Applied Arts at the University of Rijeka and Animation, Film, Photography, New Media, Scenographic Spaces, Contemporary Art Practices at the University of Nova Gorica School of Arts.

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

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.
