Campus ConversationsIn regular sessions Bard College Berlin opens its doors to students, neighbors, visitors from the local community and all interested Berliners to join in on Campus Conversations. The aim of the project is to share campus resources and provide a platform where all members of the community can freely and equally engage in discussions, learning, and cultural exchange.
The sessions are held in German or English but welcome all languages and attempt to make the content available to all participants. The meetings have a different focus each time, with topics ranging from the German elections to monument culture, or even workshops on how to write a German CV. Participants discuss their views and are encouraged to share their own experiences. Besides creating a space for informal language practice through dialogue and over a cup of tea, Campus Conversations aims to extend our community and foster cross-cultural understanding. Campus Conversations was first implemented in 2016, evolving out of the student-run initiative Open Campus Against Closed Borders.
The project is run with the support of the DAAD (German Academic Exchange Service).
