The Reader of the 11th Edition of the Alternative Education Programme is an open-source documentation of AEP’s activities, outcomes of the participants’ projects and programme’s bibliography. The reader is aimed to provide a coinciding but comprehensive introduction to AEP’s commitment to alternative learning, professional development and research. 

Rupert’s Alternative Education Programme (AEP) is a para-academic study programme embracing decentralised knowledge exchange, intersectionality and process-oriented research and development (R&D). It seeks to expand the academic field by promoting self-study practices, peer learning and close relationships between participants and tutors.

Each year, up to 9 participants are selected to take part in the programme, which provides them with the opportunity to develop their projects through a series of workshops, lectures, seminars, research trips and studio visits. The six-month programme culminates in a final show and publication. The curriculum is part-time and compatible with other commitments. During their stay in Vilnius, participants are introduced to the local art scene, invited to take part in Rupert’s other activities and engage with the residents of the institution.

Although the Alternative Education Programme is based on an already-developed methodological framework, the participants are encouraged to propose additional activities and engage in self-organised practices, for which Rupert is willing to provide curatorial and material support.
