In Weimar this subject sensitises the students to the possibilities and responsibilities of culture and art. It promotes team work in internal and external projects. Weimar offers a wide range of cultural activities both at a local and regional level. Arts management in Weimar consists of a close co-operation between the Bauhaus University in Weimar and the Friedrich Schiller University in Jena. The course is internationally oriented and in particular the preparation of cultural work in other cultures is undertaken. At present partnerships exist in Evry (Paris) as well as Prague and Brno (Bruenn). Further partnerships are in the preparatory phase.
