WHAT: TAMK Art, Music and Media 11th International Week
WHERE: Mediapolis campus Tampere
WHEN: 24.4.-27.4.2018

It’s time again for the annual International Week and we’re hitting the 11th consecutive year of the event. As usual we have exciting workshops to share with you and this time we come to you with a lot of interesting workshops about trans-media, Virtual Reality, Film & television, awesome performances and exhibitions and many many more great programmes. And all of this for free!
As the tradition dictates the TAMK Art, Music and Media International Week has gathered over 150 partners and friends from 30 countries to Mediapolis in Tampere to share their experiences and knowledge. Our teachers, students, partners and friends all work together to bring you this amazing opportunity. The main point is for everyone to learn from each other during these four intensive days.

This year the topic for the iWeek is “Who do we think we are? Identity, Diversity, Equality”. The programme has several different workshops, seminars, presentations, exhibitions, concerts and screenings. You can find the schedule from their webpage with also the link for the participant registration form that you can fill out to register to the event. On the webpage there is also a section with instructions on how to get to the Mediapolis campus and getting around in Tampere.
From their webpage you can find the event blog where people have been writing about the process and their thoughts and ideas about the iWeek from all the way back to 2008 when the event came to be for the first time. Also, the Facebook page features updates about the workshops, partners, schedule and stories from the actual event.

The workshops run from Tuesday to Thursday, with topics like “Sound, Emotion and User Experience” by Antti Jylhä from the Hague University of Applied Sciences, “Connecting Neighborhoods: diverse_CITY” by Graham Cooper and Martyn Thayne from University of Lincoln and “Live Reporting” by Yuwei Lin from University of Stirling.
