The Migrating Art Academies (MigAA) project is an ongoing aggregate network of participating art academies, people and situations. Mindaugas Gapševičius talk about the progress of this dynamic experiment in arts education. As a radical departure from the traditional bricks-and-mortar learning process, MigAA released a cadre of graduate art students for series of mobile and located explorations that literally spanned Europe – from the beaches of Baltic Lithuania, to the Gironde Estuary in France, to the Tatras mountains of Slovakia, and elsewhere. With public manifestations in Linz, Austria at prestigious Ars Electronica Festival, in Berlin at the Collegium Hungaricum, in Royan, France, and numerous other places on the way, the students piloted their Media RVs (recreational vehicles) along the highways and byways of Europe. Along with their teachers and wide-ranging selection of artists, activists and workshop facilitators, they undertook a focused experience of creative engagement with each other and the public milieus around them.
