… are a free association of students at Burg Giebichenstein who actively promote interaction and interdisciplinary work between the two faculties at the university – Design and Art. We also encourage exchange with other universities. We regard ourselves as a platform where students with interesting projects can access financial support and a public audience. We are supported by a mentor.

Our main aims are:

  • Promoting interaction between the faculties of Art and Design by encouraging and organising interdisciplinary events
  • Supporting concepts for evening events, workshops etc. that are not part of the standard range of course elements
  • Providing assistance to selected student projects, primarily in the form of equipment and materials
  • Encouraging constructive exchange between students at the university by announcing and running competitions
  • Fostering initiative and self-determination in students’ studies
  • Encouraging exchange and thematic dialogue with students from other universities
