Description de la formation

Certificate of Advanced Studies (CAS) ist eine Nachdiplomausbildung der Hochschulen und entspricht mindestens 10 ECTS-Punkten. Dieses CAS entspricht 15 ECTS-Punkten.

Participants gain a critical understanding of the potential and limitations of working with art in fragile contexts and in peacebuilding. Through examples and field visits, they get insight into actual projects in this realm. They develop a sensitive approach to international artistic collaboration in regions of conflict and learn how to evaluate its qualities and social relevance.

The training consists of two modules taught at the Zurich University of the Arts (module 1 and 3) and one study trip (module 2) in a region, where exemplary international art projects are visited. Participants who wish to obtain the Certification of Advanced Studies conclude with an individual thesis in the framework of a mentoring module (module 4).
