Summer School : Amsterdam Creative City
AMSTERDAM CREATIVE CITY: MEDIA, ART & CULTURE is a new international summer school being launched at the University of Amsterdam this coming summer (June-July 2014).
This intensive course uses Amsterdam as a living laboratory to explore the relationship between creativity, cities, and globalisation. It combines theoretical readings and discussion-based seminars with extensive fieldwork in key locations across the city, ranging from the canal and museum districts in the historic city centre to more experimental or marginal sites like NDSM Wharf, Schiphol Airport, and the ring road.
In particular, the course will study the ways in which global practices in art, media, and urban development are taking shape in a European city that has long functioned as a centre of cultural exchange.
Combining discussion-based seminars with extensive fieldwork in locations across the city, the summer school is specifically designed for international BA students with backgrounds in the humanities and social sciences and can be taken for transferable university credit (6 ECTS). All teaching, material, and coursework will be in English. Housing in central Amsterdam is available for all students who need it.
