Any art student with an interest in culture would be well suited for this program.
My favorite part of the trip was Berlin and being able to see firsthand a culture I've always been interested in. The Biennale in Venice was also pretty great.
I think my favorite part of the program was how far from my expectations it ended up being. I researched each city I visited before I left and outlined a plan of what I wanted to see, what I was going to focus my photography on, what I was expecting to find. When we arrived in our first city it was almost immediately apparent to me that my plan was way too small and narrow for the experience I was having. I realized that I had to simply keep my eyes open, draw, photograph, and take notes on whatever interested me and worry about sorting it out once I got home. As valuable as it was to know some basic information about the places I was going, the experiences I had there could never have been fully planned from home. Learning not to pre-define what my experience would be was very valuable, and what I allowed it to be was far better than anything I could have planned.
