Come talk to us about the MFA, PhD or Summer Academy programs. You are invited for an afternoon for a one to one conversation about our MFA and PhD programs with a faculty member and to receive advice on your application or input on your portfolio. You will be introduced to current students and invited to sit in on a student presentation/critique session to see how we tick. 

Please RSVP for an appointment:


Powerhouse Arena, 28 Adams Street, Dumbo, Brooklyn
January 14 from 7-9PM

Join us for the launch of the next issue of ELSE Art and Culture Journal, “The Imperceptibe Self” with readings and a reception. Meet faculty, students and learn more about our three year research projects which began this summer with the Transart Triennale and continues with the journal.  




Throughout the year we host various events in order to connect you with important information about our programs and projects. We highly recommend and encourage you to attend one of these events as they provide a unique opportunity for you to have discussions with our faculty and students. Looking forward to meeting you.

OPEN TABLES are hosted by Transart People in cafés around the globe. Join faculty, advisors, students and alumni for coffee, come if you’re curious, come for constructive input on your work or applications, hear from Transart People about their experiences with the unschool, our research projects, or ELSE journal. Share ideas on alternative education. Find out what we do—and why doing what is important to you is succeeding. Just come spontaneously, no RSVP necessary. If you don’t see an open table in your city, why not request one?

OPEN HOUSES are hosted by Transart People and take place within the scope of larger Transart events. They provide you with a chance to explore what we do and why doing what is important to you is succeeding. Open Houses may require you to RSVP - information will be provided in the event notification.
