The second student workshop of a 5-country Erasmus Plus Cooperation partnership EU-funded 3-year educational project will be arranged in Vilnius, Lithuania, by Vilnius Academy of Arts during 18-24 September 2022. The workshop theme will be Mythology: Spirituality.
The theme is connected to the living heritage of paganism in Lithuania and contemporary practices of neopaganism as subcultures for the young generation or religion for the older generation.
Students will create in small groups a spread (two large pages), for a single artist book. The pages can be seen as a metaphorical “stage”, including different augmented reality elements, e.g., animations, videos, and sounds. The workshop results will be on display as a pop-up exhibition in the House of Histories at the Lithuanian National Museum on Saturday 24 September from 13:00 to 18:00.
In addition, the student groups will present their concepts and creative design processes from 13:00 to 15:00.
Location: House of Historries Lithuanian National Museum T. Kosciuškos g. 3, Vilnius, 1st floor
