Quite an international year again it was - 33 countries at Artmedia!

One of the central goals of the school of art and media has always been to offer a truly international environment for our students and staff. Lately we have succeeded in this; in 2011 the people learning and sharing their insight in our class rooms and workshops came from 33 countries.

TAF exhibition last year. At the moment Chris is again here with his "Visual Styles"

There are many reasons to this development. The students of our international Degree Programme in Media in its third year come from 22 countries. We had a record of exchange students and also the international students of MA in Screenwriting. Tampere Art Factory (TAF) international week again attracted 50 international participants, MindTrek brought also our campus visitors and teacher exchange was working well in both directions.

TAMK Finlayson Campus, the Artmedia international campus countries in 2011 were:
Albania, Austria, Belgium, Canada, China, Czech Republic, Estonia, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Iran, Italy, Japan, Latvia, Lebanon, Lithuania, Mexico, Norway, Peru, Poland, Romania, Russian Federation, Serbia, Slovenia, South Africa, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, the Netherlands, UK and USA.

This year has started well, we host 30 exchange students who come from ten countries, and we have 27 countries represented alrady in January. Our TAF International Week will be celebrated this year May 7-11, and we look forward to hosting international guests already during Tampere International Film Festival March 7-13.
