Fees for participation in the programme will be funded by KiT. Students must pay their own travel costs and other incidental expenses.

The information below describes this year’s EEA:


The program is 4,5 weeks long and open for up to 40 participants.

As a participant you will be living in one of the apartments in the EEA building. You will
share the apartment with a few other participants from different European art
academies/universities. There are plenty of shared studio/workspaces available as well as
the surrounding landscape of Uckermark that triggers the imagination.
