Globart Academy

Our society is midst of a revolution. We are in desperate need of spaces and social resources, that enable us to discuss pressing questions of society and help us search for/experiment with new solutions in a safe manner. Let us go on this quest for our future together!

GLOBART Academy - Experience with Heart, Brain and Hand

GLOBART established itself 1999. Since then it became an internationally renowned forum for future topics. It is a platform for people, who are ready for social change and wish to become an active part of this process. The invited speakers are activators in a space, that is open for various voices and perspectives. Through discussions, working and acting together, we are able to freely develop and experiment with new tools of problem solving, that can help us create a better future for our planet. With the Academy, we fulfill our obligation to truly experience with HEART, BRAIN and HAND. We open windows into society as a conscious act of sharing new ideas on how to achieve a more prosperous future. Each year, we create a temporary ThinkingSpace on a very special location outside of everyday patterns. From theater rehearsals to the development of possible solutions for pressing concerns: we will try out everything to discover new methods and tools to broaden our perspectivesDie neue GLOBART Academy

GLOBART Academy: LEBEN/LIFE (2019) - MACHT/MAKES (2020) - SINN/SENSE (2021)

With the triad LEBEN MACHT SINN//LIFE MAKES SENSE, GLOBART implements a new format for the GLOBART Academy: in a coherent program over three years, the Academy is dedicated to key issues of our times. On three weekends in Autumn from 2019-2021 renowned national and international researchers, artists and activists will develop lectures, installations and rooms for change. Our participants are able to experience these key terms through different formats acoustically, visually and haptically. For the duration of the GLOBART Academy, the venue will be transformed into a shared living space, that invites the participants to think, experiment, design, and research together - but also to eat, dance and linger. The shared LebensRaum as an experimental field of actions can be felt and evaluated - but not predicted. The aim of the GLOBART Academy is to inspire individuals to become active participants of a vivid civil society.
