RUPERT is a project-based, trans-disciplinary and para academic educational program based in Vilnius and starting in June, 2012. Well, RUPERT is not exactly a school. And yet the prospect of learning something is not ruled out. But mainly it’s about getting things done. Starting a publication, curating an exhibition, shooting a film, doing some writing, scripting an event, designing an institution, etc.—whatever comes with a creative side and a practical side to it. Rupert is about selecting a small group of people with projects like these each year and servicing them with the info (research, training, stacks of books) and the pragmatic stuff (networking, meeting the right people, fundraising, production) needed to bring the projects to daylight. Now all the action in RUPERT is channeled via two pipes. First, each participant is assigned a tutor, a leading international figure from a field relevant to the project, who provides the good examples, the know-how and who oversees the development of the project throughout the year. Second, there is an intense schedule of events (trips, lectures, seminars, workshops, etc.) where all the participants collaborate and barter.The program is based in Vilnius. RUPERT aims to offer young people a condensed package of experiences and skills that can be seen as instruments to enhance the development of their professional career. RUPERT is a degreeless, non-academic program. It’s trans-disciplinary or even non-disciplinary. It’s proudly career-oriented. And it champions learning by doing.
