IMCCI Programme Activities
Every semester, IMCCI students take part in extracurricular activities that help expand their knowledge on local and international creative industries. Museum visits, seminars, day and weekly trips as well as special projects are only a few examples of opportunities students have to talk to professionals and learn, first-hand, about the inner workings and challenges of the industries.

~ International Lecture and Workshop ~
There is a still growing interest of artists to work with living materials, with living organisms, with living systems. These works are 1) always performative by nature of the living and acting component and 2) always hold the responsibility of taking care of the living element. That responsibility brings about moral and ethical elements within the artwork, in cases closely related to the ethical elements that are evaluated by ethics expert panels in scientific research.
