the 2018 program
The Intensive Independent International Amateur Academy (IIIAA) is a summer program that offers a diverse range of lectures, workshops, seminars, conversations and experiences drawn from a wide network of friends. We are interested in exploring both the possibilities and the limitations that this framework provides and as such the IIIAA is as much an experiment for our ‘faculty’ as it is for our ‘students’. It is an opportunity for experts in specific fields as well as amateurs in many fields, who have not necessarily taught before, to explore ways of sharing information and knowledge.

The focus this year is on pursuing themes related to practical strategies for the tumultuous interactions
between humans, other forms of life and their inanimate surroundings and jokes.

Through an open call, we found 4 brilliant participants who took part in the 2018 edition:
Ada Rączka, Nina Kuttler, Jules Dumoulin and Julio Lugon.

The intense program started on the 5th of July and ended on the 2nd of August 2018 in a big celebration.
