TASAWAR Curatorial Studios is an art-in-context study program.
It is open to students and to professionals of all ages.
We are looking for artists and creatives, designers and exhibition makers, to sociocultural workers and sociopolitical activists. We are interested in students and professionals of cultural, mind and social sciences who want to include contemporary art in their projects. We like to work with architects and urban planners in the transdisciplinary learning community as well as with students and professionals dedicated to cultural heritage. Throughout the entire program, we will foster a poly perspective approach to contemporary art.
TASAWAR Curatorial Studios are free of an attendance fee but we expect you to assist in organization, communication and documentation of the program and its activities. This might include fundraising depending on the excursions we will do.
