If you are interested in picking up your studies again in the fine arts... this might be an interesting alternative! This is a MA-program of Culture and Arts named, quite neo-liberalistic, "Art and Entrepreneurship", in Jakobstad Finland. This might not seem so appealing from the start, but keep reading. It is the first time this rather spicy program is being held, and the students -- that can apply anywhere from -- will mostly do their studies from home as the workshops will be based in multiple cities, like Berlin, Istanbul, Stockholm and Dubai. Well, actually, I must put in a waiver here as one of the cities might not happen unless we get the additional funding we need. And I say "we" because I am appointed "Artistic Director" for this program. This will ensure that the main focus with the program will be in the art, and not in "entrepreneurship".
The program is actually quite appealing, as a student you will spend a total of four weeks divided in two times (autumn and spring) in Jakobstad, Finland, one week in Stockholm, one week in Berlin, one week in Istanbul (during the biennial) and one week in Dubai/Sharjah/Abu Dhabi when Art Dubai/March talks happens and the rest of the time wherever you might want to stay during one year. You will have loads of assignments and you will, after a completed program, get a MA in Culture and Art! Not too bad, right?
APPLY! NOW! Until April 9th!
