The EAP Course in Amsterdam in June 2018 will specifically focus on peer-learning and horizontal knowledge exchange and thereby building an alternative and safe space. Practitioners from various disciplines will develop their understanding, their knowledge and their perspective on participatory art practice in a highly horizontal method. In this sense, all participants will be teachers and learners; everyone brings in their own experience in a facilitated exchange between one another. The construction of the programme and decisions during the week will be done collectively, opening up issues of the process of participation as the participants will participate in their own process of participation.


On the other hand, most of the activities will be held within the walls of Castrum Peregrini. By taking advantage of the safe and closed space, more open and free discussions are possible. In a way, Castrum Peregrini will work as a pressure cooker where the participants will live, exchange, debate, cook and share ideas for a week. By these means, a network of practitioners and thinkers will inevitably be strengthened, but also solutions for collective problems can be individually addressed. These solutions intend to later become part of a collective domain by opening the doors and sharing the results of this experimental way of learning, communing and living.
