The Art Production and Media Management program has been implemented since 1997/98, always keeping in step with the leading art schools in the art production and management realm.

The nature of the teaching process is interactive; from the very first year, the professors at the Faculty of Contemporary Arts let their students witness many filming projects and other relevant projects, so that they are directly introduced to the way creative industries work from the early days.

You are the one that creates the scene

Your vision creates the future media and art scene.

A producer is a person who works with different professions and “pulls all the strings”, so that knowledge from all these areas is necessary for the successful organization, management and realization of projects.

Now you can bring your ideas to life through a media channel of your choice and the mentorship of preeminent professors, and given the foreign language courses and the participation in international workshops, there is no reasons why your works should not go global.
