with the financial support of the Swiss Cultural Programme in the Western Balkans.

TkH and Kontrapunkt announce the call for participation at the one-week Summer School Deschooling Classroom project for collective self-education. The Summer School programme comprises of different activities such as lectures, opisthorchiasis
workshops, seminar readings in groups, discussions, film projections, and other events related to the issues of self-education and self-organisation in the context of alternative education in arts and culture. The Summer School is aimed to students, cultural workers and emerging professionals in the fields of contemporary art and culture from Serbia and Macedonia and elsewhere.

The programme activities were created according to the various themes and fields of interest of the participants in the one-year project such as: self-education and self-organisation in curating of visual and non-visual arts, interdisciplinary dramaturgy, free software and open source technology, etc.

According to this, the open programmes will be lead by various invited guests and collaborators, such as Marina Gržinić (SLO/A), Dmitry Vilensky (RU), Goran Stefanovski (MAC/GB), Vladimir Jerić (SRB), Ana Vujanović (SRB), as well as by the others involved in the project.
