Artistically Speaking: With Clear Steps Into the Future

As a college of the arts, where educators are also trained, we want to contribute to a conscious development of didactics, music and stage production. Participants in the evening¿s discussion include guests with personal experience in developing works, guided not only by the results, but also by the creative process. The audience will also meet representatives from alternative academies. Bar & refreshments.

Moderator: Petra Frank. The discussion will be held in English.
