About the Summer School
The summer school offers an interdisciplinary course on international migration, performing arts and public space. The aim of the Summer School is to discuss theoretical frameworks, methodologies and artistic practices focused on the role of performing arts in becoming spaces of resistance, activism and creative intervention in the public space about migration and diversity. Involving world-wide scholars, artists, institutions and collective experiences, the course will offer an overview on the role played by performing arts in developing alternative imageries on migration, spaces of urban participation, collective memory and aesthetics of subversion. Classroom lessons, lessons, good practices presentations, artistic performances, roundtables, open lectures, classroom project works and field works/visits will be offered in this 5-day intensive summer school, for a full-immersion on how creativity and intercultural exchange can sustain more welcoming and inclusive cities.
Classes will be held in English. In specific cases, grants will be available to cover the fee of the summer school, lunches and accommodation.
