“Summer School As a School” is an interdisciplinary educational platform based in Prishtina, Kosovo.
Stacion – Center for Contemporary Art Pristina and partner institutions have created a Summer School as a School as a unique international educational platform whose program offers an interdisciplinary curriculum, engaging experts from various fields in order to exchange and transfer knowledge and expertise with international students and the public.
Inspired by the case of Kosovo, where the education system was structured in the mid-1970s, “Summer School As a School” was designed to unite and disseminate critical knowledge from different perspectives relevant to today’s challenging challenges by implementing new models and opportunities in artistic education and artistic cooperation.

The 2018 program encompasses eleven courses, combining classroom theories and practical work, public lectures and presentations, exhibitions, performances, film programs and expert guides.
