Aditnálta

The Promise of Paradise

Monday 27 June – Friday 8 July 2016

Physically: Aditnálta, Architectural Association, 36 Bedford Square, London, UK

Virtually: www.aditnalta.co

The internet is a place with unique vernaculars, cultures and locations; it is a place for one to explore, discover and design domains. Aditnálta is an island manifested on the internet; a cloud of immaterial dreams that continues to weave and stitch its way on the World Wide Web. Within the context of the pinged online network, we will question the idea of paradise. From whimsical addresses with mystifying geographies, we will explore the pixelated establishments of Minecraft, the doors of Janus.vr, propagate Google and teleport into the bits and bytes of the modern social gathering.

From this psychedelic experience we will tell tales of the environments, draft new experiences, design new interventions and virtually spatialise the complex conditions of the promised worlds.
Come and design this experience on Aditnálta.

Fees

The AA Visiting School requires a fee of £695 per participant, which includes a £60 Visiting membership fee.

The AA Visiting School fee includes a £60 Visiting membership fee. Should you wish to enhance your membership, a Subscribing Membership is available at an additional £70 (£130 in total), full details of which can be found at: https://www.aaschool.ac.uk/MEMBERSHIP/JOIN/becomeamember.php

Fees do not include flights or accommodation, but accommodation options can be advised. Students need to bring their own laptops. Please ensure this equipment is covered by your own insurance as the AA takes no responsibility for items lost or stolen at the workshop.

Visa
Students should be aware that visas are required for Visiting Schools held both in the UK and abroad and it is the student's responsibility to investigate what is required via the relevant embassies in their country.

Insurance
 (For non-British citizens)

Due to Government changes with regard to health treatment in the UK, you will be required to have the following:
For students from the European Union
 If you are a student from another country in the European Union, here for less than six months, you will require a European Health Insurance Card (EHIC, previously called E111) which must be obtained from your home country. 
 The card is not an alternative to travel insurance.  It will not cover any private medical healthcare or costs, such as mountain rescue in ski resorts, being flown back to your home country, or lost or stolen property. Therefore it is important to have both an EHIC and a valid private travel insurance policy.  Some insurers now insist that you hold an EHIC, and many will waive the excess if you have one.
For students from non-European Union countries, ie international students
 If you are here for less than six months, please note you are not covered for National Health Service treatment in the UK.  You are therefore required to obtain travel/health insurance from your own country.
