I am pleased to remind you of the second edition of
WeTell Summer School
Innovating storytelling to address civic awareness in the post-digital age
Bologna, July 1st -12th 2019
WeTell aims to promote CIVIC AWARENESS among European and international students that live in a hyper-technological but unequal environment.
The 2019 edition of the School focuses on the notion of DISSENT as a LIBERTARIAN AND RESPONSIBLE PRACTICE to become active citizens, which turns us from IRONIC SPECTATORS to ACTIVE THINKERS.
The School invites students to investigate and experience a new approach to PERFORMATIVE STORYTELLING, understood as a practice to explore environmental complexity, diversity and change through trans-disciplinary workshops, events around the city, group discussions, and practical activities.
WeTell Summer School is organized under the patronage of the UTRECHT NETWORK, of which your University is a member, in partnership with the University of Bologna and the University of Valencia and had a great outcome during the first edition.
Thanks to the support of the Utrecht Network, students can enroll at a particularly accessible fee of 800 Euros, covering all course costs, tuitions, accommodation (double room) and board for the entire period of the Summer School (2 full weeks at the University of Bologna). In addition, hospitality grants (250 Euros each) are available through the Utrecht Network Hospitality Fund. Information for students can be found here. Travel arrangements have to be made and paid for individually.
The School releases 6 CFU-ECTS.
For pre-registrations: We invite applicants to send a motivational statement in text or video and an informal CV to firstname.lastname@example.org by June 10th.
Please, take a few minutes to navigate our WEBSITE and learn more about this School.
I would be grateful if you could help us to promote this new and challenging initiative among your students and colleagues. I shall be happy to answer queries and to provide additional information you may request. Thank you for your help!
