PUBLIC PROGRAMMES depart from BAP's previous programmes that are free and open to the public. Through artist talks, film screenings, and workshops, course leaders are able to introduce their practices and topics for ESKWELA's seminars. To reserve a seat, email info@bellasartesprojects.org.


SEMINARS are strictly limited to 10 -12 applicants who will take part in these intensive workshops. These sessions will be targeted to individuals who seek to have more intimate dialogue with guest artists, curators or academics, and are interested in participating in getting feedback for their own work or practice. Each SEMINAR will be different from each other, depending on the guest instructor. Walk-ins will not be entertained.


No requirements are needed for PUBLIC PROGRAMMES. Everyone is welcome and free to attend!

Applications for enrollment to ESKWELA’s SEMINARS are open to participants from across fields in the arts and the humanities, regardless of age. Whether a student, an artist, art historian, dancer, museum worker, thinker or passionate in linking cultural production with phenomena in society. Certificate of participation will be given upon request. Snacks, refreshments, and materials will be provided.
