Festivalcampus Niedersachsen

Fri 28.05. – Sun 30.05.

For the fourth consecutive year the KunstFestSpiele are hosting the Lower Saxony Festival Campus: fifty students of cultural and theatre studies, performing arts, scenography and composition from five universities in Lower Saxony are coming to Hanover. They are invited to participate in the KunstFestSpiele, discuss their experiences with the artists and reflect on the performances within seminars and workshops.

Thanks to the generous support of the Lower Saxony Foundation, in 2021 the project can again take place in close cooperation with the Festival Theaterformen, which will continue to host the Festival Campus in

Hannover in July. The students from Hanover, Hildesheim, Braunschweig und Lüneburg closely participate in two festivals experiencing a variety of aesthetics that allow for an artistic and interdisciplinary exchange that might not be possible within a seminar room.

Lecturers from various disciplines enable the students to take their perspectives beyond their particular disciplinary horizon. Within the frame of the Festival Campus, KunstFestSpiele and Theaterformen offer

artists and academics of tomorrow a space for critical reflection and engaged dialogue: the basis of vivid and socially relevant cultural and artistic work.
