For one week most of our class travelled to Berlin for fun...

...But also to create an amazing exhibition with our fellow INTAC classmates! 

Walter from Berliner Technischer Kunstschule had provided us with a great space in Kreuzberg in the Bethanian.

For three days before the opening everyone worked together to organize the placings and set everything up. Unfortunately everyone wasn’t able to make it, but we found enough space and volunteers for all the works to be put up. It was such an experience to fill the empty white rooms with our art pieces and see the atmosphere progress.

Everyone was full of anticipation on the opening night. It was so exciting to see the gallery gradually fill up and realize what a success our event had become. Here is a video so you get a glimpse of the evening:

Our exhibition stayed there for the rest of the week and we took turns being hosts….until Monday came and it was time to empty the place. Mikael Seidler took a time lapse of the de-installing of the works in each room. Here is a video from one of them:

This project with Intac was all about challenges, bonding, inspirations and establishing ourselves as artists. I am looking forward to continuing with this course and seeing all the creations that will come out of it!

There are many exciting application rounds for TAMK going on right now!

If you want to become a Bachelor in Culture and Arts, you can apply to our Media and Arts study programme. The pre-tasks should be sent during January.

Here's a really fun application-themed video, made by Pablo Sanchez Hidalgo and Fernando Otero:

 If you want to see more works done by our students on the same theme, type the search words "TAMK Infographics" into YouTube...

And this is NOT all! Now it's also time to apply for MA Studies in Screenwriting at TAMK!
Check this link and see the excellent tutors they have:

Both of these study programmes are taught in English, and we have students from five continents, so the studying atmosphere is very international.

What do these AMAZING study programmes cost? Nothing, at least if you're a citizen of the EU. Finland is a nice, quiet country, and the level of education is considered to be one of the best in the world. The TAMK Mediapolis campus is by a lakeside, some 15 minutes by bus from the city center of Tampere. Tampere itself is a vibrant student city, 160 km from the Finland's capital Helsinki, with a lot to do for young people. And almost everybody knows how to speak English.

(Notice how the Finnish weather wasn't mentioned at all... You can look it up if you really want to know and don't know about it already. It can be very nice here in the summer, lots of daylight. Often we don't even get snow during summer.)
