Societies across the globe face rapid transformations, pushed forward by internal and external factors. Artists are tasked with adapting to new ways of living, learning, co-existing in diverse communities and reacting to local and global change.

The summer school programmes take place in various locations in Asia and Europe, as well as online. They focus on transcultural and transdisciplinary collaboration, inviting students from across all disciplines to work together in small teams. Participants explore ways of engaging with communities and address the concerns of social transformation through art and design approaches. Using various research methods and artistic strategies (field recordings and field research, critical analytical approaches, analysis of discourses surrounding social issues), they can reflect on their own creative practice and situate it within larger socio-political contexts.
