Swawe – students workshop activities week

From 21 to 25 July 2021, in Rome, the first edition of Swawe, the Students Workshop Activities WEek, a new format conceived and organised by the group of AIAP students of Lazio, will take place.

The event aims to recreate a strong and shared sociality, which has been lost due to the pandemic, around the graphic project and its context. Meeting again in a real physical space, spending time side by side in the forge of the project and the experimentation of the workshops, reflecting, sharing and talking about projects during the talks, carrying out recreational and cultural activities with an eye always on the world of visual communication.

The programme includes workshops reserved for AIAP students of Lazio, while the rest of the programming and activities are open to all.
