The project is based on an innovative teaching concept for intercultural understanding especially with the Danube region. The interdisciplinary approach of HfK+G’s two study programs Communication Design (B. A.) and Advertisement and Market Communication (B. A.) lays the foundation for the 4 workshops carried out throughout the scope of the project continuing these workshop contents during the semester thus embedding them in the curricula of the study programs.
