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 student coordinator will do the booking once it is approved by your main tutor.

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.
