About This



As part of the European Cultural Heritage Year 2018, the sites of the Peace of Westphalia, the cities Osnabrück and Münster, invite young people from the other locations of the European Cultural Heritage Sites to take part in the meeting and participation project “Lab Europe” in Osnabrück, Germany, from the 16th to 26th of August 2018.
The joint work takes place in five so-called laboratories in the five areas visual arts, history, performance, music and media, which have the character of workshops and in which, speaking figuratively, something is divided and “cultures” grow.

The participants deal with the history and present of Europe and describe the future of Europe. The communication language is English. The individual laboratories have 8-15 participants and are accompanied by professional partners such as the Theater Osnabrück, the Institute for Music, the Society for contemporary arts Osnabrück, the Museum of Cultural History or the Medienhaus Osnabrück. The results of the laboratory work will be presented in public on the 24th and 25th of August 2018.

The Lab for digitial media and games deals with the topic of “Being European”, giving the participants the opportunity to work on a film, reportage, game or mixed media approaches. The Lab is supported by coaches from the European Media Art Festival, the LAG Jugend & Film Niedersachsen e.V., the media workshop werk.statt as well as waza! Games.
