All throughout the 1970’s it is difficult to say what exactly Ar.Co’s training consists of. Is it the school’s regular programing, that slowly but steadily tests itself? Is it the endless variety of events of all kinds that find their way into the welcoming space of Rua de Santiago 18? As the training programs become more structured and stable, the spectrum of the extra-curricular initiatives and projects tends to narrow down, though the school will keep its voccation to complement courses with presentations and interventions of outside guests. Not only Ar.Co believes that specialized training does not always allow for a multi-disciplinary dimension in learning and teaching, it also believes that other voices (whether they come from areas taught in school or not) can provide an antidote to school boredom. From the 1990’s onwards - with a competitive program and the school at the centre of the association’s concerns - Ar.Co will recover  a tradition of complementing classroom teaching with interventions by “outside agents”, that promote the student’s confrontation with specific worlds of experience and knowledge.
