Hack the challenge! Art for sustainable impact

Looking at the challenges of today’s society - how can the arts be part of changing things for the better, how can it create societal and sustainable impact?

During this intensive week you will learn together and explore how to actively practice ways of using entrepreneurial tools and ways of thinking to create interdisciplinary arts projects. Starting from your artistic core, you will co-create an idea and a plan for an innovative cultural project together with fellow art students at the bootcamp. We will focus on cultural projects that can impact society in a sustainable way.

Through lectures, seminars, invited guests from the arts field, collaborative practical work and field trips you will get tools and experiences on how to work as an artist in the future and discover how you can contribute to society.
