Ryslinge Folk High School is a project-oriented school and our philosophy is that you will come here with an idea for a project, and throughout your stay you will work and grow with that idea – both professionally and personally. A stay here is a journey from an idea or a dream towards a goal. No matter where you are in life, what you want, and where you wish to go, we will help you get there. The only requirement is that you have an idea for a project and the will to reach your aim.
Your project is individually defined – only you know exactly what your dreams are. At Ryslinge we believe that all people have something to offer. Our job is to provide you with the opportunity to realise your dreams. Maybe you want to write, or sing. Maybe you want to arrange a big concert or an art exhibition. Together we will make your ideas reality. We do not make projects for fun, but conceptualise, develop, and execute genuine, professional projects.
The principal focus at Ryslinge is project course The class covers project development and management, how to plan and schedule, financing, and market analysis as well as motivation training and workshops on the art of giving and receiving critique. The teaching is based on lectures as well as open dialogue between competent, highly skilled people, passionate about an idea and with much knowledge and experience.
Moreover, you will receive personal instruction on your project. Once or twice a week, you will meet up with your project supervisor, who will assist you in analysing, describing, and developing your project, help you with the planning of the project, and guide you through the process of executing your plan.
At Ryslinge, we also offer the following courses:
•Primary courses: Photography or the USA
