Remix Culture is an in-depth summer course for international professionals and students working in arts and media education. This intensive 6-day course focuses on the interdisciplinary options audiovisual media bring to art and media education. Media contents, techniques, knowledge sharing, means of expression and representation are constantly being merged and remixed in our modern society—mirrored by the arts.


Remix Culture offers arts and media educators new contents and didactics inspired by the contemporary media practices of professional artists and media-savvy youngsters. The course consists of formal lectures by inspiring experts, work- & discussion seminars and field trips to contemporary art/media institutes in Amsterdam. The course will be held at the beautiful Academy of Architecture, located in the city centre of Amsterdam.


The Remix Culture program connects recent theoretical, aesthetic and technical insights with the professional practices of contemporary art and media educators. The summer course is didactically designed as a ‘learning seed’: It challenges participants to develop new teaching materials during the course. These materials grow out of the theory and examples of good practice that are presented and discussed. The summer course fosters the exchange of knowledge and experiences between the various international communities of practice that the participants represent.


Course goals           


Participants learn to:


• investigate and discuss ‘remixing’ developments in contemporary arts, media studies and social studies and apply them in new teaching materials;


• analyze and select relevant contemporary art and media works for educational use;


• apply forms of creative ‘easyware’ information technologies to their teaching practice;


• design interdisciplinary education material in cooperation with peers from other (arts) disciplines;


• build a professional network with international peers active in different forms of art and media education. 


Study load and credits


Remix Culture offers a varied and in depth program of 56 hours. Successful summer school participants receive a certificate (2 EC). Participants who take part in the subsequent research project (in which they report upon the implementation process of their self designed lessons) receive an extra certificate (1 EC) and a reimbursement.
