Projects and publications

In this section we publish materials related to various exhibitions, performances and other artistic and activist statements made during the educational process. From the very beginning of its activity SOEA publishes the Bulletin of the School – a newspaper, which is jointly implemented by the teachers and pupils of the School.

Also here you can find publications about the School, both initiated by the school itself and about the school.
