Our students of Advanced Degree in Illustration need to carry out interdisciplinary projects where creativity and social work are required. This way, we avoid the isolation implicit in classroom work. Thanks to the support and backing of Fundación Santander Creativa we have been able to carry out this activity, which, as we see it, is deeply appealing for our students learning. Altera Project is an ephemeral intervention which consists of an illustration proposal by our 2nd Illustration students to tackle the windows of participating bookshops in Santander
Through the organization of this Project we intend to:
- Encourage professionalism and student autonomy
- Spread awareness of the work by Young illustrators.
- Supply the students with a new appealing platform to flesh out their illustrations.
- Carry out an urban intervention in which we promote interaction with wayfarers, placing illustrations in a different context, taking illustration to the streets.
