The KISMIF Conference 2020 will be preceded by a Summer School entitled ‘Not Just Holidays in the Sun’ on 7 July 2020 in Rivoli Municipal Theatre of Porto. The Summer School will offer an opportunity for all interested persons, including those participating in the Conference, to attend workshops directed by specialists in their fields. 


Our KISMIF Summer School program entitled ‘Not Just Holidays in the Sun’ invites students who are interested in, or currently using, DIY cultures in their research to join us for an exciting and innovative one-day summer school program. 


The goal of the one-day program will be to encourage discussion and experimentation in the documentation of DIY cultures as much as it will be to encourage a new generation of DIY academics (Punk Ethnographers!) to experiment with digital cinema and performance in their research practices. 


More information about the Summer School will be progressively circulated on the KISMIF Conference website:


The language of the Summer School is English.
