Posted On 31-05-2024

This summer, from 1st to 12th July 2024, 15 international students from all over the world will come to Venice to take part in the 2nd edition of the Arts in Venice Summer School - 'The Shape of Water ' organized by the Study in Venice institutions.

Stefano Riccioni, professor at Ca' Foscari University and scientific director of the school: "After a successful first edition of the Summer School, the Study in Venice partners (Ca' Foscari University, Iuav University, Academy of Fine Arts of Venice and the Benedetto Marcello Music Conservatory) will offer this multidisciplinary programme also in July 2024. Our Summer School is a multidisciplinary project that offers participants an almost total immersion in the environment, culture and arts of the Venetian territory The theme of water will continue to be the underlying theme of the two weeks programme which will see students engaged in field study to discover and explore what is usually learned in class: visiting churches and exhibitions, rowing along the canals of the lagoon, traveling little-known streets and squares but also famous ones experienced with a new perspective... Furthermore, this year we have designed a new final art workshop during which it will be possible to experiment with performance activities under the guidance of teachers who are also visual artists. Ultimately, the School aims to be an opportunity for discussion and exchange among international students."

The participants of the Arts in Venice Summer School are very heterogeneous: there will be university and academic students, young artists, musicians, students of art history, sociology, economics and management, media... While for what concerns their home countries, they come from Austria, Netherlands, Italy, Germany, France, Spain, Lithuania, Belarus, Russia, Japan, Australia and Syria.

The project will develop around the theme of water and the arts, in the unique scenario that Venice and its lagoon offer, it will be extremely multidisciplinary and compared to the 2023 edition there will be new instructors who will bring new points of view and new disciplines, such as cinema, architecture, urban planning.
