Erased Campaign for American students
A week ago, a group of sixteen American students from Baltimore' Goucher College visited our studio. Their visit was part of a three week long study excursion to Slovenia with professor Daniel Marcus for the course "Alternative media". The lecture we prepared focused on two parts. First we discussed project Memefest and the evolution of socially responsive communications festival. We tried to answer following questions: what is good communication work? and what defines and distinguishes a top-level author
in the field of (visual) communication?
In the second part we discussed the campaign Poper Studio did for the erased.
Students were particularly surprised of the fact that the national campaign was made as a self initiated project, without resources. The culture of Poper Studio combines for profit, not for profit and activist projects. A business model we are still experimenting with.
In their three week stay in Slovenia, Goucher students felt inspired enough to make a wonderful project of their own. The first extensive on-line resource about the beautiful Metelkova cultural centre. Congratulations!!
