Cabañas, Max Hinderer Cruz, Falke Pisano e Suely Rolnik farão uma serie de workshops de dois dias cada um com os alunos escolhidos nesta convocatória. Estes workshops acontecerão durante as três semanas, no fim do dia, segundas e terças e quintas e sextas, totalizando assim os 6 workshops.

As quartas feiras teremos uma palestra aberta ao público com um convidado especial e seguida de churrasco.

A participação na Universidade de Verão é gratuita, mas não se oferecerá ajuda de custo para viagens, manutenção ou hospedagem.

Os candidatos deverão preencher a ficha de inscrição anexa, escrever uma breve carta de motivação, incluir até 5 exemplos de seu trabalho na forma de imagens, textos ou links a vídeos o arquivos sonoros, e enviar tudo ao e -mail

A recepção de inscrições será até 10 de dezembro de 2012.

Entre todas as candidaturas recebidas se selecionará um máximo de 15 participantes. A seleção se comunicará a partir do dia 15 de Dezembro de 2012.
