Transart Institute’s MFA, PhD and Academy

Transart’s low-residency MFA in Creative Practice (http://www.transartadmissions.org/aboutmfa) aims to create a space for students of all disciplines to interact with a wide range of artists, scientists, theorists, media practitioners and visionaries. Whatever genres students choose to work in the program is designed to: enrich students’ praxis; foster change; facilitate a connection between group and personal work; provide the means for contextualizing work in the wider world; and develop interaction strategies with audiences.

The only low-residency PhD for artists (http://www.transartadmissions.org/aboutmfa) is offered for creative work only: your practice is your research. We foster and support research in: international diaspora, post-nationalism and post-colonialism; identity; exile; the role of art in peace and mediation; home; space(s) in between; temporary architecture; foreignness, otherness and the uncanny.

Advanced Artist Summer Academy (http://www.transartadmissions.org/academy/) Guest artists and curators attend the summer academy to get a creative surge, revitalize their practice and community, gain fresh perspectives on their work, experiment in a protected, supportive environment and/or to strike out in new directions.
