College of Creative Arts Study Abroad Experiences in Prague, Czech Republic. This four week intensive study abroad experience includes CCA 121: Introduction to the Integrated Arts & Culture, and CCA 221: Immersion in the Integrated Arts & Culture. In the first week, CCA 121 will explore elements of design principles and the creative process in multiple art disciplines and styles, including theatre, architecture, fashion, studio art, and more. This initial work will support the immersion of these principles in CCA 221 on location in Prague where we will engage in the culture of the Czech Republic and its people. Class meeting time at Miami will be from 9am to 1pm, while class time in Prague will be driven by immersion activities and classroom meetings to prepare and share class projects. These classes meet both Miami Plan Foundation 2A and Global requirements. Students interested in using this study abroad to complete a thematic sequence should contact Marly Wooster at woostems@miamioh.edu.

Weeks two through four will be on the ground in our base city of Prague. Prague is the largest city and the national capital of the Czech Republic. It is a unique destination not only because of its rich artistic heritage of medieval to contemporary art and architecture, but also due its central location in Europe with convenient transportation available to nearby neighbors like Austria and Germany. This particular window of time will also provide a truly unique opportunity to engage in the 2019 Prague Quadrennial (PQ), the largest international entertainment design exhibition in the world, showcasing the work of professional and student artists. Through the PQ students will have the opportunity to engage with artists from all over the world and view culturally unique artistic works from different countries.

The unique cobblestone streets of Prague connect vibrant buildings, bridges and plazas full of shopping, street and performance art, restaurants, pubs, diverse museums, historic castles and locations of import, along with an amazing array of outdoor public art and sculpture. Along with walking tours of the city and the Prague Castle, students will be taken on two planned excursions outside the city. The first is a day trip to the historic grounds and memorials of Terezin Concentration Camp in the rural lands of Theresienstadt. Our group will tour this fortress constructed between 1780-1790 that was later confiscated by the Nazis during WWII. The fortress houses a museum and art exhibitions on site, along with a cemetery and memorial just outside its walls. Along with this, students will go on an overnight trip to Czechy Krumlov in the Bohemian region of the country. This ancient and more rural city, is built around another medieval castle which houses an authentic Baroque theatre containing original theatrical machinery and art, and is surrounded by vast castle gardens, quaint streets filled with local artisans and restaurants overlooking the river. The adjacent Castle Park is home to the truly unique Revolving Theatre, which rotates the audience in an outdoor venue as each new scene unfolds in a different area of the park grounds. In both Prague and Czechy Krumlov, students will have time to wander the streets, visit shops and galleries, enjoy authentic Czech cuisine, or even float down the river on rented canoes. Student housing in Prague will consist of furnished apartments and both day trips, PQ admission, museum admissions, tours, and performance tickets are included in the program fee.
