Summer University 2016

Between June 5th and October 7th, 2016 we invited you to take part in the programme of the Summer University of the Arts Berlin. Again we were able to offer our participants from over 50 different countries a big variety of Workshops in the fields of Fine Arts, Music, Design, Performing Arts, Arts Management and Creative Entrepreneurship as well as Interdisciplinary courses. Our internationally acclaimed lecturers gave their best to broaden our participants's perspective. Here are just a few examples from last year courses: 


Fine Arts: Workshop with Valérie Favre & Robert Lucander 

In one of our all time classic Workshops these two famous artists gave our participants a deep insight in the field of painting and feedback to their own work. Visits to several museums provided them with a lot of new inspiration. 


Music: Opera Audition Preparation Masterclass

These innovative Masterclasses by Cheryl Studer and Gerd Uecker were especially designed to prepare young professional opera singers for the German-speaking Opera scene. 


Arts Management: Financing and Touring Performing Art Projects

Designed for emerging artists, managers or producers this Workshop explained the cultural funding process on real life examples. 


Creative Entrepreneurship: Channel your Creativity. Develop a Business Concept in Three Days

The coaches and co-founds of Dark Horse Innovation gave the participants a toolkit and confidence to develop their own business ideas. 


Design: "À la recherche du temps perdu" – A Digital Graphic Novel

Based on Marcel Proust's famous novel the participants designed their own graphic novels in the animated GIF format. 


Performing Arts: The Drama Works

In precisely patterned exercises the two famous Dramatists David Spencer and John von Düffel taught the participants the essential elements of the dramatist's craft. 


Interdisciplinary:  Writing Ashram

In the green just outside of Berlin the participants learned how to enhance their writing productivity and self regulation to push forward their text projects.
