INTERATIVOS 2018 | Jan – July

7 Jan

INTERATIVOS 2018 | Programme January to July | British Artists 

(For more info & RSVP, please visit:

–       During this semester we’ll focus on British artists, often making a parallel with Latin America.

–       At Interativos we start the workshop talking about an artist/ artist movement & reading poems to engage on nice conversations and to get inspired to do the creative work. Please don’t expect a lecture! It’s all very informal and in a friendly environment.

–       We propose an activity, but we also like the idea of a free space, so feel free to work on your own ideas or to bring something you’re already working on.
