prerequisites and co-requisites
The Creative Lab uses knowledge from cultural management/science and event management/science to create an innovative project idea. The students learn to develop a convincing concept for a competition in the field of art and culture and to present it to a jury. Project ideas are developed within the scope of their practical implementation and put into an application form that reflects the evaluation criteria of a sponsor both in terms of content and form.
A budget plan with a simple expenditure/income structure shows the individual project activities in a comprehensible way and demonstrates the professional implementation of the idea by a project team (program, marketing, infrastructure, etc.). Targeted cooperation illustrates the synergy effects and network quality of the project.
In a role play, the projects are examined on a professional basis
