What your Experience in Venice looks like

YOUR JOURNEY IS METICULOUSLY CRAFTED
The schedule, refined over years,seamlessly integrates lectures, curator meetings, dedicated project time, and museum visits with summer open-air dinners and leisurely walks. The outcome is a step-by-step blueprint to bring your dream project to life in 2024, all while maintaining momentum in your career.
THIS IS A DIFFERENT KIND OF NETWORK
Deep conversations with curators, artists, and organizers leave a mark on our students. Have meetings with top galleries like Victoria Miro and Venetian art spaces featuring special Biennale projects. Have an off-the-record talk from the director of the Bel Air Fine Art gallery, representing Jeff Koons and Damien Hirst in Venice.
CONCRETE RESULTS AND STRUCTURED SUPPORT
The booster course offers a practical alternative to theoretical art history courses and lengthy master's programs in fine arts. It's designed for people seeking tangible outcomes in a condensed timeframe. Over two intense weeks, you work through the ECA Workbook, honing the essential elements of your project. You gain clarity, energy, and practical skills to effectively execute your project or plan your next artistic endeavor.
MEET YOUR COMMUNITY
Previous cohorts still have monthly Zooms, and the WhatsApp groups are buzzing months later. The program led to the creation of two residencies, multiple group exhibitions, three collaborative workshops, and incredible friendships. It is a safe, inspiring, accepting environment. It gets emotional, allowing you to truly advance your work.
EXPERIENCE THE BEST OF ITALIAN CULTURE
Go to the best spots in town - dine with the gondoliers (tables reserved in advance to skip the queues). Come to the favorite restaurant of Zaha Hadid architects or a bar designed by Philippe Starck. We’ll guide you through the best dishes on each menu. The experience culminates with a legendary boat ride across the Grand Canal.
