Aiming to create two-way relations with the context in which it takes place – the island of Zlarin – the Summer School programme is designed to address issues that we consider crucial for their sustainability: community building and engagement, tourism and its adjustments to the needs of the local communities and, finally, care as an organising principle intertwining all the elements necessary for the growth and well-being of the community.

We invite students, scholars, cultural and creative practitioners, cultural professionals and activists who work with and within smaller communities, in rural and non-urban areas worldwide, to join us!

The Summer School is organised by IN SITU partners Kultura Nova Foundation in cooperation with the Centre for Social Studies of the University of Coimbra and the IN SITU Consortium.The working language of the Summer School will be English.
