This year's Summer School explores the role of art and making in today's economy and ecology of means. What is the relationship between art and labour in tomorrow's world? How can art generate and support communities? How can we build a sustainable future for the rural landscape in Russia and beyond? We will work on a real-life projects in Nikola-Lenivets Art Park which will respond to this challenge. Results and Opportunities
The international Summer School at Nikola-Lenivets is a perfect opportunity to acquire hands-on experience in designing and building an architectural intervention in a beautiful natural landscape. Teams are international and are composed of young architects and artists. In 2017 we had participants from the UK, Italy, Latvia and Russia. Peer to peer learning and ideas exchange is just as important as the knowledge you receive from the School's tutors.
We invite tutors and experts from the Umea School of Architecture, Sweden, ETH, Zurich, the AA, UK, University of Brighton, UK, MARCH, Russia, as well as others. The tutors for each school are confirmed a month before the start date.
