The task of the Studio of Spatial Activities is to try to identify and shape the creative space in which we move and act. Students describing their places and exchanging point of views with representatives of other places, create communication zones. Studio works not only in the Academy, but also in the city. We want to pay attention to the social and political problems regarding the space where we move. We try to help the young people to find the identity (including artistic) before facing off with the pressure of success. Studio invites people who share their experience and skills of understanding Space itself, which is very close to the structure of the porcelain.
