Tolerance Workshop, "Students for Tolerance"

On April 11th, the workshop "Students for Tolerance" kicked off with my lecture to the students from Zagreb/Croatia, Dortmund/Germany, Ljubljana/Slovenia and Graz/Austria. They will be working together on Tolerance posters for this entire week.

31 students from 6 nations are participating in the workshop, and they have been working on individual design concepts for Tolerance posters. The posters created in the workshop, as part of the Design Month Graz, will be displayed in a show that takes place at Joanneumsviertel Graz on May 12th. 

The following 4 colleges are participating in the workshop:
The University of Zagreb
Fachhochschule Dortmund - University of Applied Sciences and Arts
The Academy of Fine Arts and Design of the University of Ljubljana
FH JOANNEUM - University of Applied Sciences

I would like to recognize the relentless efforts of Tomislav Bobinec, professor at FH JOANNEUM Design & Kommunikation in Graz, who conceived the idea for the workshop and organized it.
