Defined the calendar of the RUFA workshop session for the academic year 2018/2019. The start is scheduled for March 4. Theoretical activities will alternate with practical ones, allowing to broaden and deepen the notions of normal teaching. Artists, experts and professionals, and this is exactly the strong point of the RUFA workshops, are ready to confront with students to give shape and substance to new projects and to determine cognitive paths different from normal conventions. The workshops, thanks to the contents they are able to express, allow students to acquire training credits: an additional incentive to facilitate the connection between theory and practice. Registration must be completed by Tuesday, February 12, by filling out the appropriate FORM from 11.00 am on Thursday, February 7, 2019.
