School Projects

As part of 80+1, we are pleased to announce a unique program connecting schools in Linz and Upper Austria with schools around the world. The goal is both as a cultural exchange on an intimate, personal level as well as a collaborative project around our 20 topics. These projects will be co-presented as simultaneously as we can, given time-zone differences, and will be archived on our website. The cultural exchanges are centered around “Stuff Boxes.” We’ve asked students at both ends to contribute something small, personal, interesting, and not expensive, along with a brief written story about it. These items, the “stuff”, and their descriptions, will be mailed from one school to the other. During the prescribed week, the stuff boxes will be opened at both ends, the material documented, and instantly uploaded to our website. Though we have secured most of our partner schools, we still some open slots. If your school might be interested in participating, please email us.

Supported by: Bionade GmbH, Haribo, PEZ, Blickvang, Haberkorn
