University Grant for Art and Sustainability Program

In a fantastic start to 2015, we are happy to report that the Freiburg Scientific Theatre, in conjunction with the MEG Program, has received a generous grant from the University of Freiburg to develop and conduct a seminar and workshop series on Art and Sustainability Science. The grant, which was awarded by the University’s Student Representative Council, comes from an Innovation Fund designed to encourage inventive and original teaching methods.

The Freiburg Scientific Theatre intends to use the grant to bring prominent international academics working in the field of interactions between art, sustainability and science to the University of Freiburg to lead a series of lectures and open discussions. In addition, a series of interactive theatre and art workshops will be held to encourage university students to experiment with the use of artistic methods to communicate important sustainability science messages. The two-part program will be held over the summer and winter semesters in 2015, with each part culminating with a public performance by the Freiburg Scientific Theatre.

More details on the Art and Sustainability Program will be posted on this website soon.
