FestivaL'and

The summer school in 2021 is organized as hybrid workshops (face to face & virtual) led by international and local tutors to work out the ideas on spatial arrangements for a pop-up festival centre, develop the design proposals, and construction process.

The intense workshops are enriched by inspiring lectures, guided excursions, discussions, and feedback sessions, as well as cultural and leisure activities in the nature, concerts, performances and being together with the creative crowd of Valmiera Summer Theatre festival.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions of travel in 2021 we combine presence in Valmiera and virtual participation.
