A composition for untrained voices

The twelve-week Art programme (formerly '84') occurs twice a year, in the fall and the spring. You can read the manifesto and curriculum

The programme consists of a mix of workshop weeks hosted by guest artists and weeks focused on developing both individual and collective praxis through experimentation, conversation and reflection. The programme is also an ongoing exploration of what an arts programme can be, and all participants are part of shaping, molding, disturbing and maintaining this conversation – and the programme itself.

Participants have access to various studio spaces and facilities to support their investigation and practice. Participants stay and live at the school for the duration of the programme.
