Changing the world with art!

30. January 2020

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.

What awaits you:
- Peer-to-peer coaching on 2 weekends (Friday noon to Sunday noon) in the summer term 2020 Dates: 20.- 22. March und 15.- 17. May.
- an online preparation and reflection phase for the coaching weekends (approx. 10 hours spread over the summer term 2020)
- participation in a 1-2 day conference of your choice on the topic of sustainability/the Sustainable Development Goals of the UN Agenda 2030
- the implementation of a small, first project together with the other students in the summer semester 2020
- Networking with other motivated and committed art students (up to 3 students per art university can participate in the project)
- an allowance of 100 euros for your commitment
- the opportunity to participate in the overall event of the project UniNEtZ - Universities and Sus-tainable Development Goals on 4. and 5. March 2020 at the University of Applied Arts Vienna.
