Both programs are hosted by Expeditions, a non profit organization specialized in ‘off the beaten track’ ethnographic fieldwork and research training. Year-long experience of bringing together aficionados of all trades to collaborate on shared research interests, taught us the value of interdisciplinary collaboration and exchange. Apart from an in-depth and hands-on engagement with one of both thematic foci, the programs also seek to set off a scientific cross-pollination.

They both take place simultaneously on the Island of Gozo, Malta. The premisses of the renowned Expeditions’ Summer School for Anthropology and Ethnography, Xlendi Gardens, will serve as a basecamp for all participants as well as the workshop leaders. All take part in the co-creation of communal spaces for learning and eating, with the aim of generating a creative surplus and exploring the connections between vernacular architecture and graphics in methods and representation.
