About the event

Apply for 'Living Makeshifts' the 2023 edition of the Living Summer School ,a free summer school for 30 young (international) participants who want to have a sustainable and meaningful impact on the region of Southwest Flanders. This year we’ll be reflecting on how we can collectively shift the ways we make space by using what’s already available. During this time, we will try to deconstruct hardwired common practices to investigate more sustainable, emergent life cycles for our built environment. Together, we will occupy different building sites across the territory and test methods in constructing, maintaining and deconstructing the spaces that surround us.

Eligibility: Participants need to be under 30 at the start of the Summer School and be legal residents in France, the Netherlands, Italy, or Belgium. We welcome practitioners from all backgrounds, working with different media.

What you get: The opportunity to work on a societal challenge for a week, design and build a 1:1 prototype. You will be guided by a team of international architects, researchers, designers, artists and professional makers. Not only is the experience free, but all participants will receive financial aid for their travel expenses from their country of residency to Kortrijk. Housing and food are included, as well as a bike rental for the week.
