Objective: The workshop explores different narrative forms and artistic approaches, moving between reality and fiction, documentary practices, creative histories and storytelling. 

The Narrative strategies studio takes its references not only from the Visual Arts but from a wide range of disciplines such as films, documentaries, archives, new media, literature and graphic novels. Although the course is directed towards Art students, it is not a necessity that the student is from the visual Arts field, however it is important to have an interest in Visual culture. 

The Narrative strategies studio aims at giving the student insights into different artistic methodologies and approaches and encourages the students to interpret, develop approaches and to explore their own creativity. The workshop includes both theoretical reflections and practical assignments.

Target group: Anyone who’s over the age of 17 and who has an interest in visual arts.
