2. July – 16. July 2020
in Venice, Vienna, London and Krakow

The "International Summer Academy for Fine Arts and Media, Venice" is one of the largest and most dynamic summer academies in Europe with 14 master classes in the various arts and 100-150 participants. Based on 16 years of experience, we developed a new module, the "Advanced Studios program” for experienced artists.

The aim of this program is to be able to achieve a maximum potential for creative work through the development of a cooperative project with professors and experienced artists in an interdisciplinary composition.

Over the many years of the "International Summer Academy in Venice", this composition had developed into an optimal configuration.

After intensive preparation of the didactic program, an interdisciplinary project will be developed in a two-week workshop for advanced artists and two professors. This will then be performed in Venice. A cooperation between Andrzej Welminski, Kraków, theater art, with Wolf Werdigier, Vienna, painting, and 14 participating international artists is planned for 2023.

Following the presentation in Venice there will be performances in Kraków, Cricoteca, in Vienna, produzenten gallery. Vienna, and in London, Bruford College.
