International student camp Terra
In the space of the Terra studio, in the period from May 8 to 18, the international sculptural and educational workshop “International Student Camp Terra 2023” was held. During the ten-day event, which was conceived as a professional practice at the Terra teaching base in Kikinda, the skills of sculpting in terracotta were experienced by final year students of art academies from Belgrade, Novi Sad, Cetinje, Rijeka and Osijek.
Courses in the field of sculpture (with emphasis on sculpture in terracotta) were led by Slobodan Kojić, M.Sc., academic sculptor, founder and director of the Terra Center and former professor of the Faculty of Fine Arts from Cetinje, prof. Zdravko Joksimović from the Faculty of Fine Arts from Belgrade, prof. Slavko Živanović and Aleksandar Bunčić from the sculpture department of the Academy of Arts from Novi Sad, prof. Darija Žmak – Kunić and prof. Dražen Vitolović from the Academy of Applied Arts in Rijeka as well as Adin Rastodera, expert associate from the Faculty of Fine Arts in Cetinje as well as Margareta Lekić, professor from the sculpture department of the Academy of Arts in Osijek and Josipa Stojanović, expert associate from the same university. The Terra student camp is part of the regular activities of these academies, with which CLPU Terra has signed cooperation agreements in the field of education and knowledge transfer and has been going on for many years.
Institutional cooperation with art academies, at the national and international level, is one of the most important segments of Terra’s cultural policies in the field of art and knowledge transfer. In this context, such projects are a valuable experience both for students and professors, as well as for organizers, and also represent an important event that can contribute to the development and promotion of positive examples of cultural cooperation policies of the country through the direct exchange of knowledge and experience of artists and cultural professionals.
