   Postgraduate program in arts, media & design
   Hogeschool Sint-Lukas Brussels
   Brussels, Belgium
   The Transmedia postgraduate program in arts, media & design is a
   two-year, full-time course and leads to a masterís diploma in
   Transmedia studies.
   Application Deadline
   October 1 2006
   (The number of new admissions for the 2006-2007 academic year is
   limited to 15)
   Transmedia offers you a stimulating environment where your work comes
   first: a continuous and independent art practice that seeks for a
   dialogue with similar practices from other disciplines. You are
   invited/expected to engage in an ongoing conversation on your work
   (process) through tutorials, group discussions, seminars, workshops
   and the interchange of ideas and skills with fellow students. The aim
   of our program is to encourage you in producing art-work that involves
   the computer either as a working tool (editing, designing,
   programming) or as a presentation model (multimedia installation, web
   site, CD-ROM). Still, we emphasize the user's creativity rather than
   the machine. You are challenged to engage computer-mediated
   interactivity as broadly as possible, that is, using different and
   alternative forms of narration, installation and interface to foster
   innovative forms of communication and expression through transmedia
   art-work. We believe that people of different backgr ounds and
   experiences are central to this collaborative, multi-disciplinary
   practice. Therefore, we welcome candidates from a variety of
   backgrounds: from graphic design, visual arts, architecture, and
   performance to photography, film, video, installation, and new media,
   but also from the humanities, sciences, music composition, dance, and
   industrial design.
   The Transmedia program focuses on research and its integrated mix of
   art practice and critical thought. This enables you to emphasize not
   only technical knowledge, but also the conceptual understanding and
   insights you will need to produce thoughtful, engaging, and
   professional artwork. You learn from internationally recognized
   teachers and visiting artists who are actively shaping the direction
   of thinking and practice in the rapidly evolving transmedia field
   through their own work.
