WAKE UP: The School of Global Art: Down Under!

The School of Global Art extends its global outreach to sign up new class of international students, setting up our first Global Outreach campus in Melbourne, Australia.

Expanding this year’s topics to include close reading of teenage Tumblr Asks, discussion of the discussion of the ‘Arab Spring’ and history of painting up to CS5. This term also includes practical modules in Meditation for Artistic Inspiration and Art by Telephone/Google+ Hangouts. SGA:DU brings together artists, writers and academics from London, Berlin, LA, Tehran and Hong Kong with local Melbournite experts for a nine-day intensive programme.

How does the world look upside down? Join us to find out!
