Project stay in Berlin

At Prenzlauer Alle in Berlin, Umeå Academy of Fine Arts and Konstfack/the University College of Arts, Crafts and Design share a flat. Here students from both schools may spend short periods of time working on a specifc project.


If you're a registered student and wish to book the apartment

One student from each school is allowed to be there at the same time if nothing else is agreed upon.  As a student at Umeå Academy of Fine Arts you may apply for a period of no more than two weeks per term in order to allow as many students as possible to go there. We prefer that you book whole weeks, i.e. Monday-Sunday so that you arrive on a Monday and leave on a Sunday, or shorter.  You apply by sending a project description to your main tutor telling him/her what your aim with the trip is and how you plan to achieve it (half a page up to a page long).

When you send your project description to your main tutor you also let him/her know which week you wish to be there. In Cambro you see which weeks are free.

The key to the apartment is collected from the administrative secretary after paying a deposit of 500 SEK.  Please do not wait until the day before you leave to pick up the key, rather do it a few days in advance. When you pay the deposit you receive a "contract" with information such as address, general rules and cleaning instructions for you to take with you to Berlin.
