Maxim Bakos
from Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design (MOME) in Budapest made a quick visit to Finlayson Campus on Thursday. We started our cooperation three years ago when we joined a EU animation project proposal coordinated by Maxim and MOME. That proposal was not successful, but now we have made another project proposal, so it was really time to meet after all the emailing.

We have had cooperation with MOME since 2004 in the EUROPRIX Academic Network. At the moment the international offices of MOME and TAMK are preparing an ERASMUS programme agreement between our universities and MOME Media institute and our media programme. This is good new especially for our students specialising in Animation. MOME animations have won numerous nominations and awards in EUROPRIX and other international competitions.

We are hoping to see guests from MOME at our International Week and Tampere Art Factory Festival in April.
