Cultural promotion of the Student Administration

In Lower Saxony, the cultural promotion of students is in Lower Saxony is a legal task of the student services, as it is in most of the federal states. Since 1995, is the Cultural Office Hildesheim is available to all students as a continuous and professional contact point for questions related to art, culture and cultural promotion.
Our main objective is to offer active creative engagement as free space or complement to studies to all students – whether they have a culture-focused course of studies or not. The contents our offers are orientated towards the needs and wishes of the students. Student culture is characterized by spontaneity and variety. Accordingly, the Cultural Office creates its programme each semester anew, in cooperation with students groups, initiatives, university institutes and other cultural supporters from Hildesheim. This requires a feeling for development and tendencies as well as to walk along new paths of implementation. Cultural activities offer a chance to broaden one’s individual horizons and to link in an interdisciplinary way. Interdisciplinary and university-comprehensive intercultural projects promote the exchange between students of different faculties, universities and cultures, as well as the perception of the university by the citizens of Hildesheim. Creative work in cultural projects contributes to the active shaping of the university as a living space.

The cooperation with other cultural providers and institutes of the city of Hildesheim creates additional possibilities to present student cultural engagement to a public inside and outside of the university.
