Culture at the University of Münster

When international artists converge on Münster for the Skulptur Projekte every ten years, the city's cultural life becomes the focus of world attention for several weeks. But in the meantime, Münster is home to an extremely vibrant cultural scene, to which student organisations and the University contribute with their own programmes and events.

The Kulturbüro (Culture and Arts Office) is responsible for publicising and funding cultural events at the University. Every semester it publishes the magazine "UniKunstKultur", featuring news on current issues, upcoming events and cultural groups.  In addition to providing sponsoring, the Kulturbüro also offers advising and PR-support to cultural organisations at the University.
