Our Alternative Education Program was developed out of a need for combining art education and professional production, establishing knowledge exchange by a group of lecturers, participants, artists, curators and other international creative practitioners and researchers from both within and outside the field of contemporary art, fortifying the academic community with a distinct brand of self-directed learning while providing individuals with a community. The Educational Program is a degreeless, non-academic program. Every year it selects a small group of people with aspirations to realize individual projects and offers them practical and theoretical support to enhance and realize them. In addition, it offers wider professional support and access to resources and community, encouraging participants to learn through practice.

If you are interested in developing a project: an art work, an exhibition, a film, a book, a magazine, an online platform, an institution, or any other project that you think can benefit from, and would in turn benefit the program, let us know! In the words of Doris Lessing who is well informed in the ways of Education: “Whatever you’re meant to do, do it now. The conditions are always impossible.”
