The Aiap Summer School in Palermo is an ambitious project, born within Aiap, Italian Association of Design for Visual Communication, in line with the more complex internationalisation project already started up and in particular from international relationships and educational models created and widely experienced during several editions of the International Graphic Design Week. A project that was created with the close cooperation of educational institutions in Sicily (Academy of Fine Arts and Bachelor of Industrial Design in Palermo), and Austrian ones, the Sigmund Freud University in Vienna (SFU) and the International Institute for Information Design (IIID).
Which are intended:
to become a regular and itinerant system throughout the national country and internationally abroad;
to establish a process of study, learning and experimentation based on the sharing of cultures, languages, and different backgrounds;
to face up contemporary issues that can may gift innumerable countless and interpretations as well as design scenarios; to converge in one place teachers and students from different realities with the firm conviction that this can generate growth and mutual and everlasting enrichment.
A model that will is going to have in Palermo's its first tangible attainment, to be able to be translated in other territorial contexts soon after.
