WARSAW SUMMER SCHOOL 2015 - ONE DAY PARADE
3-14 August
This year the Warsaw Summer School will design, build and perform a parade on the streets of Warsaw. But before the parade can commence, a route must be found, costumes made, a mobile structure built and a performance choreographed.
Parades are commemorative civic celebrations that mark a special day or event and take the form of a procession, often involving costumes, floats, inflatables and marching bands. Each parade takes a journey through the city and during its performance temporarily transforms its local urban environment.
The big finale – our ‘One Day Parade’ –  will commemorate our collective experience of a single day in Warsaw.
The parade is the architecture of the brightly-coloured, light-weight, mobile, temporary, big, elastic, inflatable, expandable, foldable.  TIME and movement are crucial; the parade must be carefully choreographed and synchronised along the street.
The lead tutors will be Nina Shen Poblete, Christopher Burman, Ned Scott and Kevin Green.

Target group

This course is open to students of all ages and with varying levels of experience. The course will benefit students wishing to study art, architecture or design at university as well as those who are already at university. Equally the course will provide an introduction to ambitious beginners with no design background.

Course aim

This course will provide students with the knowledge and skills set to make things to skill. We will also concentrate on documenting the work done over the ten days culminating in an impressive portfolio of work. This portfolio will be an invaluable piece of documentation when applying for under graduate and post graduate degrees in Fine art, design or architecture.

GBP 300: The cost of the course will cover the students materials and tools. The fee however will not cover accommodation or travel. For more information on accommodation in Warsaw please contact school@s-t-o-r-e.org
