Program Description:

SIT Study Abroad Czech Republic: Arts and Social Change

 Explore the Czech Republic’s contemporary art scene and the role of art as a social change agent throughout the country’s history.

WHY STUDY SOCIAL CHANGE IN THE CZECH REPUBLIC?

Studying in formerly communist Czech Republic, you’ll learn how art and creative dissent have played a decisive role in shaping social and political change. You will live in picturesque Prague and explore the country’s rich artistic heritage and contemporary art scene and consider the relationship between art, politics, and society. You will also take part in workshops on ceramics, stop-motion animation, or architecture, and in civic initiatives for building local communities. You’ll travel to Germany, Slovakia, Poland, and Bohemia or Moravia, to explore mountain villages, visit arts centers, meet activists, and create traditional art.

Your two homestays—in Prague and in the rural villages of Moravia or Bohemia—will allow you to observe diverse social realities and learn about the country’s communist history and post-socialist transition.

During the program’s final month, you will complete an Independent Study Project (ISP) on a topic related to the program theme. You may also opt to produce creative work, such as visual arts and photography, or a short story or theater script inspired by your experiences.
