MUSAE interdisciplinary PROJECT WEEKS ANTWERP 13-27 February 2023
In February 2023, 48 artist-students from different universities of Tunisia, Uzbekistan, and Palestine will start a trajectory with 3 creative weeks in Europe and online group work in between. As a student, you will collaborate with students from other universities and local European students who are open to interdisciplinary co-creation and dare to consider the inclusion of technology in their creations. Entrepreneurial skills will be developed during the project trajectory and applied during the work weeks. Some entrepreneurial keywords: Ideation, Concept Design, Value Proposition, Pitching, Networking, Finances, Intellectual Property, Branding, Business Plan, Promotion, Digital Identity, Key partners, Project Resources, etc. During the first work week students will meet in Antwerp, Belgium. After speed dating, 8 project teams will be installed, based on international and interdisciplinary presences, in a mix of all universities, preferably a gender mix and a mix of Bachelor-Master levels. That same week an interdisciplinary project week called ‘Nextdoors’ takes place at the Antwerp Conservatoire. This will involve dancers, musicians, and theatre students. There will be unique opportunities to attend specific sessions and participate in workshops. Besides participating in the Nextdoors activities, the focus of this workweek is developing an idea into a concept, pitching and networking. Project groups will rehearse and perform try-outs in the second week. After this work week there is a continuation via online work, to prepare the showcase in L'Aquila.
