External projects

The Schools of Arts also conduct externally funded research, often in collaboration with local or international cultural or educational partners. These research initiatives are part of programmes of city or European governments (including Erasmus+, Creative Europe, VLIR, among others).

Resilience in Resonance

2019 - 2022
coordinated by Kristof Timmerman and Janna Beck (MAXlab - Royal Academy of Fine Arts Antwerp)

'Z-Elements' is a strongly interdisciplinary project. The objective is to develop artistic experiences and exchanges to explore how traditional and analogue artistic expressions can involve and attract a younger audience from Generation Z, and how young people can contribute to the development of such subsectors through co-creative processes towards the development of Digital Transmedia Storytelling products.
Supported by Creative Europe Culture Cooperation Projects
