The aims of the postgraduate course are: to generate experiences by designs, to create one’s own language in the relation of gastronomic culture with arts and design, to recover traditions (gastronomic memory) and blend them with the latest aesthetic canons, to work in multidisciplinar teams and to give the necessary tools and theoretical knowledge to students so they can develop their project from beginning to end. Resources on negotiation techniques, gastronomic coolhunting, photography, representation techniques, among others, are learnt.
The course starts with a theoretical segment in which previous concepts, design processes, generic event types and history of gastronomy are taught. By this, the student acquires a solid foundation for a better gastronomic proposal, contextualizing it in accordance to the corresponding event.
The second segment focuses on the planning area, where students perform several practical exercises. Edible materials are at the heart of they all, taken as the main vehicle to communicate and achieve a successful event.
There is a third optional segment, composed of educational visits outside the course schedule to broaden the students’ knowledge.
The course is for industrial, graphic and interior designers, with at least two years of professional experience in their field, who are passionate about gastronomy in events and want to focus their professional profile on this world.
Creative directors from any field who are interested in the culinary world and particularly in offering and managing new experiences within the field of catering.
There will be a previous interview to assess the candidate’s interest and motivation.
