One of the main activities promoted by the Cultural Association EffectUs

is to train through an artistic knowledge sharing , a mission that is reachable only thanks to availability of our tutors to share their knowledge.

This sharing takes place through: WORKSHOPS (short classes of 1 maximum 2 hours that are held during the EffectUs Event) and MASTERCLASSES (lessons of 1 or more days) on which our members are entitled to special discounts.

Below you can have a brief overview of all the topics that have been developed during the workshops organized within the program of EffectUs Event, divided for years and joined to its tutors. For more informations on our tutors you can visit the dedicated section of the website.

We remind that exclusively for the EffectUs members there is a reserved access to the Vimeo Channel to watch the videos made during the event (which cover part of the workshops and were not made on occasions other than the EffectUs Event itself), more informations on how to get this benefit, they are available in the section of the website how to join, while for the list of videos available on Vimeo at the time (page still updating) click on the following link.
