Transcultural Collaboration (TC) is a unique international MA semester programme in the arts and design, and a cooperation between Shared Campus partner institutions in Asia and Europe.

30 participants from all arts and design disciplines have the chance to explore Zurich, Taipei and Singapore, collaborating on experiments with open outcomes.

The programme is divided in three parts:
4-week stay in Zurich: 23 August – 18 September 2022
9-week stay in Taipei: 19 September – 20 November 2022
2-week Field Trip in Singapore: 21 November – 3 December 2021

The programme is dedicated to practice-based collaboration and teamwork between the participants in changing constellations. An annual semester topic and related lectures serve to focus debates and provide a framework for practical experimentation. The programme is complemented with additional inputs by guests, excursions, and workshops. Participants receive close support from selected faculty from all partner institutions, as well as from independent artists and experts from various arts and design disciplines. The semester includes a symposium in Singapore and a public presentation in Taipei.

Curious, (self-) critical and adventurous students from all Shared Campus partner institutions are now invited to apply for the 7th edition of the programme.
