Fabrica, a communication research centre
Published on January 28, 2014
Fabrica is a communication research centre. It is based in Treviso, Italy, and is an integral part of the Benetton Group.
The university established in 1994, Fabrica offers young creative people from around the world a one-year study grant and provides opportunities for professional and creative growth, as well as a wealth of resources and relationships, as they develop social and cultural communication projects in the fields of design, visual communication, photography, interaction, video, music, and journalism.
Fabrica is organised into studios, each exploring a particular theme or area of interest. A studio is a space, a team, and a way of exploring a subject. Studios contain small, medium and large projects, running fast and slow across most forms of output. Each studio is a self-contained, multidisciplinary creative team, capable of making many things and shifting fluidly depending on need. Each studio is run by a studio lead. Although it is possible to move between studios, via different projects or projects shared between studios, you should apply to the studio that you are interested in. You will also get to pursue personal projects.
Most studios last 12-18 months, and the current Fabrica studios are described below. Choose one studio to apply to, and then we will ask you for personal details, for instance, and portfolio.
You might be a coder, graphic designer, musician, industrial designer, filmmaker, motion graphics artist, writer, illustrator, interaction designer, animator, some combination of these or even something else. You must be 25 years old or younger.
