The Department of Audio & Visual Arts of the Ionian University is delighted to announce the launching of its first Summer School in the subject of Hybrid Arts. The Summer School will take place in the Greek island of Corfu, well-known for its natural beauty and cultural heritage. Corfu offers a multicultural environment with visible influences from the Venetians and the British in its architecture as well as its traditions. The Ionian University, as an academic institution, is a legacy of the Ionian Academy founded in 1824. Despite its small size, the Ionian University has proven, over the years, to be one of the most energetic academic institutions in Greece, especially in the fields of arts and humanities.
The Summer School in Hybrid Arts will begin in May 29th, 2017, integrating both Greek mythological inspiration connected with the Ionian Islands and the (almost) unlimited possibilities of new media. The Summer School will run for two weeks, divided in two cycles. Applicants can submit their registration to one or both cycles. Each cycle has a duration of one week, the first starting on May 29th, 2017 and the second on June 5th, 2017. The courses offered are theoretical and practical and the program also includes lectures from guest speakers as well as educational excursions in several locations connected with the thematic of the summer school.
