The What is a Faculty? workshop is organized within an exhibition focusing on the work of architect Aleksandar Stjepanović. As Stjepanović designed the Faculty of Drama Arts in Belgrade and the Faculty of Philosophy in Novi Sad buildings, the workshop intends to acquaint young visitors with the definition of higher education, drama arts, the content of a faculty of drama arts, other types of schools, the content of their buildings, etc. The first part of the workshop consists of conversations and is taught with the help of photographs, whereas the second part is of a literary and artistic type, where participants can draw or write down (or both) how they image a day at a faculty. They can choose any school, i.e. profession and they can also imagine visiting a friend studying at a faculty designed by Stjepanović.
