More than 400 people attended our courses already. Many returned twice and thrice. Read why.
The dynamic relationships and idea exchanges with fellow students is so valuable. The course gave me sense of validation and calm regarding the direction of my career and personal path through the world of art and culture.

Jocelyn Burke
Art lover
The networks I was able to create during last summer's course at the European Cultural Academy have enabled me to put together my first exhibition in Amsterdam, just as much as the exhibitions I viewed and all the knowledge I gained in Venice have.
Andreas Mittermayr
Artist
ECA is an awesome experience for the beginners and professionals likewise. Beginners can get first-hand insights into the industry of visual arts premium events, and professionals get access to a wide network and can position their work in a global context.
