The UC3M and CBA School of Arts 2020 begins on the 22nd June

The summer courses will take place in person with an online option for those living outside of Madrid


The Universidad Carlos III de Madrid (UC3M) and the Círculo de Bellas Artes (CBA) are organising a new edition of the School of Arts. The 13th edition of the summer courses, focused on reflecting on society, culture and art, will take place between the 22nd June and 3rd July 2020.

Escuela de las Artes 2020

This edition brings together five courses and five workshops, aimed at students as well as professionals and the public interested in general culture. Politics, photography, series, gastronomy, videogames, art, and fashion are some of this year’s subjects. In addition to the in-person courses there will also be an online format available for those living outside of Madrid, due to mobility restrictions caused by COVID-19. These online formats will only be applicable to the courses. The workshops will only be offered in an in-person format. All of the activities carried out at the course venue, the Círculo de Bellas Artes in Madrid, will follow security rules and protocols established in the framework of health alert due to COVID-19. 

The School of Arts is the cultural and artistic project from the Círculo de Bellas Artes and the Universidad Carlos III de Madrid, and a reference in the offer of summer courses in our country. Organised by the Vice-President for Communication and Culture at the UC3M and the CBA, the School is committed to interdisciplinarity and critical and creative dialogue with the present. The courses are taught by academics, professionals, and artists.
