FestivaL'and

The summer school is organized as the team workshops led by international and local tutors to work out the ideas on spatial arrangements for a pop-up festival centre, develop the design proposals, and construction process.

The intense workshops are enriched by inspiring lectures, guided excursions, visits to the local construction material factories, discussions, and feedback sessions, as well as cultural and leisure activities, concerts and performances, cinema screening, exciting parties together with the Valmiera Summer Theatre festival.
