" ..I met people at Metàfora who really changed my life. It was so nice to have peers from all over the world, who were interested in the same as me.
The group from that year still keeps in contact through social networks, and it is really beautiful to feel that these international contacts have become friends for life.."

"I was searching for an environment to explore my creative practice…and Metàfora is the perfect place to do this. I felt it was important to choose a school which was far removed from my familiar surroundings, so Barcelona, Spain was the perfect setting.
It has been a city I have always been drawn too, for its beauty and artistic influence. During my time at Metàfora I immersed myself in an environment of supportive tutors; an engaging studio environment and most of all, creating a bond with fellow students, which continue beyond the duration of the course.
Metàfora is an environment that allows you to discover, engage and explore your creative potential. The course is more about exploring contemporary art practise as well as networking with practicing artists and relevant art organisations."
