Cultural Collisions is an internationally proven, interdisciplinary art and science education format that allows students to gain access to the world of science and approach complex topics through artistic exploration.
The artistic-creative engagement of students with technical and scientific topics is intended to promote early inspiration for the later choice of a field of study and to counteract the shortage of young talent in the STEM professions.
Young people are often unaware of the diversity of technology. As a result, they know little or often nothing about the different career fields. In addition, outdated role models are still prevalent, and stereotypes discourage girls from studying technology.
We face the following challenges and want to counteract them with Cultural Collisions:
Scientists of the TU Wien prepare technological topics scientifically and bring them closer to artists, students and educators.
Artists translate the technical problems into works of art, exhibit them in the museum and inspire through a different perspective.
The inspiration conveyed stimulates the students' own creativity and enthusiasm.
Pupils and teachers experience a topic both through the scientific preparation and through the artistic staging and deal with the topic in class. The museums teach the students how to deal professionally with the creation of a work of art.
Selected students have the opportunity to exhibit their artwork in the museum and present it to their families, school colleagues and the public.
The project extends over a period of 5 years. The target group consists of students (10 - 14 years), educators and parents.
The project is carried out in cooperation with renowned partners from the fields of art, culture and education.
