TARGET GROUP – The target group is working professionals who want to deepen and build up their theoretical and practical knowledge, as well as emerging professionals looking for new perspective in their career.
Staff in museums, collections and similar institutions, promoters and curators of art, culture or science, staff in tourist or leisure learning establishments and anyone building or updating their skills in exhibition project realization are potential applicants.
The target audience of the Creative Eastern European Scholarship in Exhibition Development is emerging professionals from Eastern Europe in various stages of their careers who would benefit from a “crash-course” to accelerate their skills beyond learning-by-doing, or those who seek access to cutting-edge developments in the field.
This unique program at the Department for Image Science enables students to profit from the knowledge and experiences of outstanding experts in the field of scientific and cultural exhibition-making and design. Participants will be presented with creative and organizational skills like exhibition development, scenography and project management as well as with know-how about the financing, copyrights-management and the international transfer & lending of exhibition objects and multimedia-based techniques of presentation.
The different characteristics of special, permanent and traveling exhibitions are taught, supported by many case studies. Best-practice-examples of leading experts in exhibition design and management give thorough insights into contemporary trends and introduce students to new working fields with a special focus on immersive exhibit architecture and experiential worlds.
International experts like Christiane PAUL, Wendy COONES, Stefan IGLHAUT, Brigitte FELDERER, Christian WALTL, Lutz ENGELKE, Becky GILBERT, Frank den OUDSTEN, Patricia MUNRO and more are brought together through this singular program – a network that combines historic vision with the latest knowledge about current developments and trends on a high level.
The certified program covers competencies for the professional assessment of chances and risks in contemporary exhibition planning and shows how to apply these skills in concrete projects.
By developing and completing a concrete project, participants get the opportunity to try out their own ideas in exhibition work. This way they are able to apply newly learned aspects of project management and their gained knowledge on the creative and theoretical components of “exhibition making”. There is plenty of opportunity for discussing exhibition issues with experts and for the individual specialization of knowledge. After completing the course, participants will be better equipped to undertake the project organization of designing and managing exhibitions and experiential worlds.
