What other services does EINA Alumni offer?

What is the procedure for using EINA workshops?

Taking into consideration that there are dates when the EINA workshops are very busy, to use them you must make a prior booking by sending an email to gravat@eina.cat (EINA Barra de Ferro Arts Centre) or to taller@eina.cat (Mock-ups and Prototypes Workshop in Sarrià). While EINA provides the infrastructure and advice, the material (inks, supports, etc.) must be provided by the former student.

What are the Training Capsules (continuous informative sessions)?

The aim of the Training Capsules is to offer EINA Alumni members active learning, both to refresh and improve their design-related professional skills and to look more deeply into the fields related to art and the humanities, in workshop, seminar or lecture format.

Every academic year, a number of training capsules will be offered, normally at EINA or at the EINA Barra de Ferro arts centre.

Places will be limited and registrations will be accepted strictly by order of application.
Courses will require a minimum of 6 persons enrolled.

The duration of these sessions will normally be 4 hours and they will cost € 20 for EINA Alumni members and € 80 for non-members, per person and course.

To enrol on a Training Capsule, you should reserve a place by sending an email to alumni@eina.cat. If there are places free, you will receive a confirmation email.

If after reserving a place you are unable to attend the activity, you must cancel your reservation by sending an email to alumni@eina.cat so that someone else can take up your place.

Cancellation should be no later than 24 hours before the day of the activity. If you don’t attend the activity and you haven’t cancelled within this period, a non-attendance penalty will be applied (you won’t be able to enrol on any other training capsule for 2 months after the date of the course in question). If the cancellation is on medical grounds and you cancel less than 24 hours before the capsule, you will need to show a doctor’s letter for the penalty not to be applied.

What are EINA Experience talks?

Experiència EINA (Experience EINA) are talks and meetings that aim to bring together alumni around a crosscutting topic in the field of design and art, which, following a common thread, will be discussed to encourage learning between equals. Various training sessions will be offered in each course.
