The teaching staff includes professional figures from all over the world: artists with significant exhibition experience, curators and researchers from academies, prestigious educational institutions and museums.
The school is also one of the 18 partners in the Parallel – European Photo Based Platform project: co-funded by the European Union’s Creative Europe programme, the goal is to educate and promote emerging talents in the field of photography and curatorial research through a packed programme of meetings, tutorship, exchanges and exhibitions in various European institutions.
The school boasts a programme of exchanges and artist residencies that involve the students in specific projects in Italy and abroad. It also hosts young foreign artists for short periods of research in Modena. During the two-year course, there are also group visits to particularly important events, exhibitions or festivals.
