GALA Summer School (July 23–30, 2018)
The GALA graduate summer school will bring together graduate students to learn more about practice-as-research/research creation, the creative and cultural industries, multimedia practice, public engagement, social change, and the liberal arts through a series of classes, workshops, and collaborative sandpits. It will be taught by faculty and technicians at Concordia as well as faculty from other GALA partners. Students will develop a multimedia portfolio of skills, experiences, and evidence that they can use in their existing research projects and future careers. The students will join the GALA conference on Friday 27 July. The summer school will conclude with a final showcase event on Monday 30 July.
