Avoin Akatemia

Avoin Akatemia on oppimisen ja kriittisen keskustelun elävä foorumi ja Kuvataideakatemian yhteiskunnallisen vuorovaikutuksen väylä.

Avoimen Akatemian avoin yliopisto-opetus taustoittaa taidetta paitsi perinteisin luennoin myös elävien esitysten keinoin. Opetus on tarkoitettu yhtä lailla taiteen kentän toimijoille ja tutkijoille, harrastajille kuin kaikille muille kiinnostuneille.

Tervetuloa kuuntelemaan ja keskustelemaan!
