International Relations

International exchanges and the interaction of practices in diverse artistic domains are the essence of a lively creativity. From its very beginning, ESAM Design has developed links with other countries by welcoming many students from a wide variety of cultural horizons, organised study fieldtrips abroad and participated in international workshops and competitions.
