Changing the world with art!
How can we shape our future sustainably and socio-ecologically? What role do art, students
and univer-sities play in this context? With the project "Arts of Change - Change of Arts: Students of art universities in
Austria shape change" you have the opportunity to network with students from five Austrian art uni-versities, to further educate
yourself in terms of content, methodology and strategy through peer-to-peer coaching and subsequently to implement trans-
and interdisciplinary projects. You will become part of a cross-university network of students who are jointly shaping the
social-ecological transfor-mation and working for sustainable development.
