Program description

Master Performing Public Space

The new international Master Performing Public Space (PPS) is designed for international creatives from a variety of art disciplines, who currently focus on public space as their artistic environment. This blended-learning program (online/on-campus) is breaking new ground in investigating public space as a backdrop for artistic expression and intervention. Creatives with a background in theatre, dance, circus, music, fine arts, architecture, digital arts and graphic design are welcome to join this program.

Innovative online / on-site program

PPS offers you an enriching & flexible learning environment, which directly relates to your current artistic work in public space. The teaching methods, which are based on the principles of Social Transformative Learning, are designed to be highly adaptable. Individual coaching, paired with 24/7 access to the online learning platform, together with on-site bootcamps held in Tilburg, the Netherlands, will make you part of a creative international community.
