Miró Campus 2024

If, among other things, you would like to learn about the process of curating an exhibition and how it is communicated and delivered to the public, or how artistic research and audiovisual practice dialogue with each other, then the Miró Campus is for you.

Over four days, the academic conference will be held in various spaces at the Fundació Joan Miró. The museum will become an academic space in which several museum professionals will share experiences, practical cases and reflections with students.

The activity forms part of the Fundació Joan Miró - UPF Chair of Contemporary Art. It is particularly aimed at students taking bachelor's, master's and doctoral degrees in Communication at the Universitat Pompeu Fabra, but will also be open to all those who would like to expand their knowledge. Doctoral degree students will be able to have their Miró Campus participation officially recognised as a specific training course (AF3), and bachelor's degree students will be able to get 1 ECTS credit.
