Festivalcampus Niedersachsen

Fri 17.05 to Sun 19.05

For the seventh consecutive year the KunstFestSpiele are hosting the Festivalcompus Niedersachsen (Lower Saxony Festival Campus): about forty students of cultural and theatre studies, performing arts, scenography as well as theatre pedagogy 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 support of Stiftung Niedersachsen, in 2024 the project can again take place in close cooperation with the Festival Theaterformen, which will continue to host the Festivalcampus in June in Braunschweig. The students from Hanover, Hildesheim, Braunschweig, Osnabrück 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 Festivalcampus, KunstFestSpiele and Festival 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.
