Providing encouragement at the Folkwang University of the Arts


Participation in artistic competitions is an indispensable part of the development process of young talent. This demonstrates creativity, quality and social skills.

Thanks to the continuing support of our sponsors, the Folkwang University of the Arts organises competitions in the areas of Music, Theatre, Dance, Design and Academic Studies. At the same time, we actively support participation by our students in external competitions.
