Trip to Madrid:
Every year Metàfora travels to Madrid during Block 4, coinciding with the international art fair ARCO. The trip is organized as “low budget” and includes the journey in train or bus and 2 nights in a shared room at a hostel in the center of Madrid. During the days in Madrid the accompanying tutors organize different activities for the students to join, the majority of which are free of cost. The trip is included in the fees of the first year for all-year students on Metàfora’s Studio Arts Program. Short term students and continuing students are welcome for a fee of aprox. 120€.
Off Campus exhibitions: Metàfora organises 4-6 off-campus exhibitions every year in galleries and art institutions around Barcelona. Students are invited to respond to Open Calls organized by inhouse tutors. Some of the off-campus exhibitions may involve a small contribution of approx. 40€.
Metàfora organizes orientation regarding set-up and contributes with drinks for the opening reception.
Open studio exhibitions: All students get to show their work in our two large Open Studio exhibitions (November and June). In these are shows there will normally be the most part of 300 visitors, press coverage etc.
