“GENDER” Symposium and Workshop


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.
