GSO helps building digital bridges between culture and communities

Click the picture to read a blog-post on the Mind the Gap webpage. This is an Erasmus project that HVL is a partner in which focuses on how one can build digital bridges between culture and communities. Specifically this post looks at how we in the GSO actively integrate ecological sustainability both as a concept and in practice.

Poster-contest for Creavolution

We wish to host a contest for the poster, open for all participating students to make suggestions for what the poster should look like. 

The winning suggestion will then be worked further with by a professional visual/graphic artist.  Suggestions for the poster will be included in the Eco-art Gallery, and some of them will be shown in the opera.
