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