About the Education

About the education

What will you learn?

iArts is a 4 year bachelor’s programme within 3 years. This means it is a very intense, high-density programme. You’ll work on a series of projects. You’ll invent creative and original solutions for current social and cultural issues, in the form of artistic products or artful interventions. Think installations, films, performances, and games. Think meetings, publications, plans, and enterprises. Each and every intervention will be the result of interdisciplinary teamwork. Your teachers are experts in their fields and have experience with interdisciplinary encounters.

In iArts, we combine entrepreneurship and art into a mindset. We do theoretical research and create and sell art. We learn about what we need to make things happen, like organizing yourself, talking to technicians, planning transport for people, and pitching in front of an audience. We need to engage with the world and connect as human beings. We use everything around us as a source of inspiration and a possible subject for our art projects. We don’t limit ourselves and we are constantly pushing our own boundaries.

Theory and skills training

In addition to the projects you will get theory, skills training and reflection. In theory education, disciplines such as art history, art analysis, dramaturgy, philosophy, text analysis and sociology are drawn on in order to explore specific themes addressed in project education in more depth. Examples of skills training are singing, design skills and multi media training.
