European Citizen Campus



Final meeting and exhibition of all projects in Antwerp takes place on 25th and 26th June 2015.


Together with the nine European partner organizations, German Studierendenwerks help to establish the European Union´s culture project, European Citizen Campus in Germany, which offers artistic opportunities to 144 Students of all disciplines from Belgium, Germany, France, Italy, Luxemburg, and Portugal.

24 students from these six European countries are given the opportunity to take part in creative workshops led by actual artists, involving dance, music, painting, photography, performance, and cross-over during the Summer of 2014.

These workshops seek to artistically address the students´ European Union citizenry. How well do these European students understand their fellow European Union citizens? Is there a sense of European identity or a concept of citizenry among these students? How can we artistically translate these ideas?

The work of these students will be shared among the six countries and discussed; A closing exhibition and international conference in Brussels is being planned for 2015.

„We are creating a new artistic opportunity for these students, and we´re including them in this political debate in order to hear what they have to say about the identity of the European Union“, explains Achim Meyer auf der Heyde, the General Secretary of Germany´s Studierendenwerks, which is helping to lead this project. „I am certain that the artistic approach will enrich the abstract, political discourse.“

In Germany, Studierendenwerk Freiburg and Karlsruhe will work with Studierendenwerk Mainz.
