LOOKING BACK: ICAF/COMUART SUMMER SCHOOL IN BARCELONA

After the last ICAF festival in March 2017, our Spanish colleague Eva García approached us with the suggestion to hold the next ICAF Summer School in her hometown Barcelona. She had attended our very first Summer School in the Netherlands at the end of August 2016 and saw many possibilities to improve it – as did we. After an extended working session with Eva in rural Catalonia in August 2017, we decided to go for it, got our ICAF intern and Barcelona resident Laura Blanch involved and the rest, as they say, is history. With a financial contribution from Barcelona’s prestigious Grec Festival and in-kind support from the Sala Beckett in the Poblenou neighbourhood, the invaluable partnership with Eva’s organisation ComuArt, and the help of many local volunteers, we managed to produce our very first ICAF event outside of the Netherlands.

The second ICAF Summer School took place between 22 and 29 July. It attracted close to 60 highly qualified participants from Catalonia, Spain, Chile, Argentina, Ecuador, Brazil, the USA, China, Australia, Czech Republic, the Netherlands, and many other places. Our artist teachers came from Mexico, the UK and the USA. For them, for the participants and for us as organisers it was a challenging but ultimately a very rewarding experience. READ MORE...
