The aim of the European Cultural Academy is to enhance knowledge and advance your career in Art, Architecture and other Creative Industries.We help creative communities to increase visibility, build connections and make a lasting impact on their careers. 

Top reasons to study here

  • Receive support and mentoring from our faculty of international experts.
  • Immerse in cultural and creative activities anywhere in Venice, from historic palazzos to art galleries.
  • Get the chance to complete an internship at the European Cultural Centre in Venice.



European Cultural Academy emphasises practical solutions. You will get behind the scenes of the Biennale and learn to collaborate with governments, artists, foundations, and sponsors. At the end of the course, you will create a real project (e.g. exhibition project,artwork, publication, event etc.) that might be added to your portfolio/CV and you will have a possibility to present it to the public. 


The activities include hosting creative professionals in residence, providing research assistance to all artistic disciplines, organising art events, exhibitions, publications, training, lectures, public debates and symposiums for various fields of thought.
