ESCAPE FROM SCHOOL
This year's theme is inspired by the place. The working space and a playground of the Summer Scriptwriting Base 2020 will be an abandoned boarding school for young criminals in the village of Gabrovtsi. The school now is run by a group of land-artists and is a surreal mix of run down buildings and impressive pieces of land-art.
"Le Roi est mort, vive le Roi" - the participants will escape this ex-boarding school and the ideas of the conventional school and will immerse into a type of school - an interactive creative experience.
