SIT Czech Republic: Arts and Social Change
School for International Training study center
Prague, Czech Republic. With just over 1 million inhabitants, Prague is the capital city of Czech Republic, situated on the Vltava river in central Bohemia. Registered on the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites, Prague has been called the “city of one hundred spires” and “the golden city” and is home to the largest ancient castle in the world. Prague is one of the world’s most popular tourist destinations; its historic architecture remained relatively untouched during the World Wars.
Explore the Czech Republic's contemporary art scene and the role of art as a social change agent throughout the country's history.
Students study the country's communist past, its post-socialist transition, and the new challenges facing artists and communities today as a result of globalization and tourism. Site visits to artists' studios and theaters, NGO offices, and community centers expose students to the country's beleaguered arts infrastructure as well as the initiatives in place to protect and promote the arts and social initiatives.
