Transart Institute's MFA, PhD and Academy

Application Deadline: Our programs accept students on a rolling basis. The final application deadline is approaching. Applications for the MFA, PhD and the Summer Academy are due July 1. More information on Transart's application process can he found at

Transart's low-residency MFA  in Creative Practice aims to create a space for students of all disciplines to interact with a wide range of artists, scientists, theorists, media practitioners and visionaries. Whatever genres students choose to work in, the program is designed to: enrich students' praxis; foster change; facilitate a connection between group and personal work; provide the means for contextualizing work in the wider world; and develop interaction strategies with audiences.

The only low-residency PhD for artists is offered for creative work only: your practice is your research. We foster and support research in: international diaspora, post-nationalism and post-colonialism; identity; exile; the role of art in peace and mediation; home; space(s) in between; temporary architecture; foreignness, otherness and the uncanny.

Advanced Artist Summer Academy Guest artists and curators attend the summer academy to get a creative surge, revitalize their practice and community, gain fresh perspectives on their work, experiment in a protected, supportive environment and/or to strike out in new directions.
