What is it about?
As part of the European Cultural Heritage Year 2018, the sites of the Peace of Westphalia, the cities Osnabrück and Münster, invited 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 took 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 was divided and “cultures” grew.
The participants dealt with the history and present of Europe and described the future of Europe. The communication language was English. The individual laboratories had 8-15 participants and were accompanied by professional partners such as the Theater Osnabrück, the Institute for Music, the Society for contemporary arts Osnabrück, the Museum of Cultural History and the Medienhaus Osnabrück. The results of the laboratory work were presented in public on the 24th and 25th of August 2018.
