Lab Europe is a project for young people who would like to work creatively in one of our offered five labs with other young adults living in Europe. The labs vary from theater to music, to art, to history to media. Working together on different artistic levels with our partners, the participants will have the chance to share their own culture as well as gain a perspective of other cultures. The project is going to take place in the city Osnabrück, which, together with Münster, is awarded with the European Heritage Label, as a ”Site of the Peace of Westphalia”.
