Symposium “Art. Culture. Sustainability” in Ludwigsburg on June 29th/30th

What is the role of art on the way towards a sustainable development?  How can art and culture inspire us to adopt a sustainable behaviour that is environmentally conscious and socially responsible?

Artists, opinion-makers, experts and stakeholders in the creative sector, from the national and international scene, will come together to discuss the global challenges, to share ideas and to suggest solutions for cultural institutions, local authorities and networks that wish to embed sustainability in their strategies and activities.

The EUTSA member Academy of Performing Arts in Ludwigsburg invites all EUTSA students and staff to participate in the lectures, round tables and performances of the symposium.

In cooperation with the Baden-Württemberg Foundation, the Bundeszentrale für politische Bildung (Federal Agency for Civic Education), the Wüstenrot Foundation and the Heinrich Böll Foundation Baden-Württemberg

Each year before summer break acting students and teachers of the University of Music, Theatre and Media dedicate a week to a burning issue. For five days the actors’s workspaces host experts giving lectures or tutorials on their fields of work. Some time is dedicated to workshops devised by students. Each year this “Symposium-week” has proved to be a highly inspiring, mind-opening and joyful event for students of all grades.

For this years topic “Gender” we invite experts from the broad field of “gender studies” as well as artists, scientists and politicians.
