The Greifswald International Students Festival (GrIStuF) is a biannual festival hosted by volunteers in North East Germany. Its aim is to connect students from all over the world in dialogue beyond nationalities, race or religion. It provides a platform for exchanging ideas and enables discussion on current topics. This years theme "Sea: the Future. Discovering the Ocean Current" will put in focus the state of our oceans, their role on energy, trade, or culture, as well as issues like migration and the ocean's pollution.
Under the motto "Sea: the Future" we are already looking forward to the next Greifswald International Students Festival 2016! From 4th to 11th of June 2016 approximately 150 students from all over the world will be hosted in Greifswald to deal with workshops concerning the oceans - suitable for the 21st century that is better known as the century of the sea. We will focus on topics like environment including pollution and energy, but also cultural perspectives, migration over the sea and ecological aspects. Cultural events such as films, music and party that suit the motto will complete the programme. You can find more information on the workshops here.
Online application can be submitted starting from mid-november here.
We from GrIStuF e. V. are looking forward to one week full of intercultural connection and worldwide international communication.
The official opening ceremony will initiate the thematic work of the festival. The participants and numerous guests will gather for the first time and will be introduced to the festival's motto. There will also be a public presentation of the results of the festival at the end of the week in the city center of Greifswald. In different manners like e.g. posters, performances or lectures the outcome of the festival is going to be presented. Therefore you all and Greifswald's interested public gets the opportunity to see the workshop's results and to connect with each other.
Where is your next sea?
Haze mists out of the ancient factory, rattling sails merge with the smell of diesel engines and the loud shouting of the seagulls.
There are 360 million squarekilometres water on earth. What does this huge body of water mean to you? relaxation ? escape ? money?
MINKUS LYS invites you to dive in, to go fishing for ideas, to ask questions and to land it all together as a collective art installation. Come around, let your thoughts flow and start knotting on the multifaceted net of the festival.
