Art Fest is an all-around art exhibition with live performances and interactive showcases. It involves talented artists, students, and clubs from Jacobs University and internationally. We showcase all kinds of art mediums such as paintings, drawings, photographs, films, theatre pieces, writing, pottery, poetry, dancing and much more!
This year’s exhibition is curated by the theme: “The Future in Our Hands”.
Poverty. Immigration. Inequality. Climate Change. These are just some of the problems our current generation is facing.
Join us on the 17th and 18th of April at the University of Jacobs.
