It started thousands and thousands of years ago
on a mysterious moonlit night,
when one among a tribe huddled around the fire
began to tell a story.

Today, storytelling has evolved in unbelievable ways.
We tell new stories with different
art forms and technologies,
entering fictional worlds to shed light
and understand our lived reality.


We educate  aspiring artists and professionals through an immersive and experiential curriculum, cultivating a learning environment where practitioners push their formal boundaries, contextualise their work in response to their contemporary reality and develop a distinct humane voice.

We are committed to creating a trans-disciplinary community of lifelong learners who break our conditioned binaries of industry and academy, commercial and art, fiction and non-fiction.
