Autostrada Biennale Education and Production Space has started with its skills building workshops in order to empower youth in Kosovo.
Through a process of education, onsite training, and an open production towards exhibition, our aim is to develop new models of cultural production that will encourage the young generation to become part of the artwork building and installing process as well as of critical thinking through art. We hope such a model will bring values of sustainable living especially at a time of socio-economic depression. This project space aims to generate coexistence among communities by working and producing together as a team.
The space with its two studios, the Atelier and the Technology LAB, along with its education program employing experts in their fields, will have a long-term impact on young people for future jobs related to art, technology and innovation. More specifically there will be ongoing production skills workshops on: Wood and Metal Shaping, Design and Fabrication; Communication and Multimedia; Robotic, Coding and Electronics Workshop; and 3D Modelling & 3D Printing Workshop.
This project is supported by the US Embassy in Prishtina and co-financed by Prizren Municipality, the Confidence Building Project is funded by UNMIK and Gjirafa.
