The Performing Public Space course from Fontys School of Fine and Performing Arts at Fontys University of Applied Sciences is designed for artists from a variety of art disciplines, who currently focus on public space as their artistic environment. This blended-learning program (online/on-campus) is investigating public space as a backdrop for artistic expression, intervention and research.


Performing Public Space is committed to understanding how cultural developments can produce meaningful change within our shared spaces, based on the idea that public space exists only when it is socially performed. In a time in which political and social structures are re-considered heavily, PPS offers a flexible and innovative environment to artistically question, redefine and reclaim public space in its broadest sense. Combining an interdisciplinary range of approaches and subjects, with an equally diverse range of research methods, the Master Performing Public Space course from Fontys School of Fine and Performing Arts at Fontys University of Applied Sciences creates the opportunity for artists to explore their practice and its potential in public space. Creatives with a background in theatre, dance, circus, music, fine arts, architecture, digital arts and graphic design are welcome to join this program.

International network

Performing Public Space is active in forming collaborations with other cultural institutions, organizing online discussions on contemporary topics and growing its presence in the educational and cultural landscape. This growing PPS community can be a pillar of support for its artists before and after graduation.

Programme Structure

PPS combines highly adaptable teaching methods, which are based on the principles of Social Transformative Learning.

  • The online learning environment (distance learning) offers students a 24/7 platform for intensive research and creative dialogue with their peers and mentors throughout the program.
  • The on-site bootcamp education weeks provide the necessary setting and hands-on approach to investigate, develop and test work in the field - the public space.
