Open Worlds – Share Knowledge: OPEN CAMPUS at the University of Bremen

On June 23 and 24, the University of Bremen invites you to OPEN CAMPUS. After an open-air concert on Friday evening, a full program of lectures, guided tours, and a poetry slam will follow on Saturday afternoon. In the evening, a live show with headliner Gentleman will conclude the event.

Under the motto "Open Worlds - Share Knowledge," faculties and institutes will offer many interesting and entertaining information events.
Whether it's lectures on artificial intelligence or the effects of serotonin, a visit to the famous Drop Tower at the Center of Applied Space Technology and Microgravity (ZARM), a tour of the Mensa cafeteria, or a look at the Geosciences Collection, where dinosaur bones can be marveled at – there's something for everyone.
From taster language courses in Korean to simulating the formation of volcanoes, there are plenty of opportunities to get actively involved and acquire knowledge. There will also be a math rally around campus.
Additionally, interested students can seek guidance on issues related to the university's degree programs and applications, as well as on educational and internship opportunities at the university. Refreshments will be provided by various catering services.

Children's Campus: Hands-on Activities and Workshops

At the Children's Campus, even the youngest guests will get their money's worth. In hands-on activities, they will become researchers in their own right. This time, the element of water will play a central role. Exciting experiments and activities have been prepared – from making soap bubbles to building rockets. In addition, a balloon artist, face painting, and a pagoda with a painting and crafts corner will await the children. A bouncy castle and a goal wall offer the opportunity for the kids to let off steam.

Extensive Stage Program with Top Act Gentleman

The "UNI Festival" on Friday, June 23, 2023, which is hosted by Open Campus together with Bremen NEXT, will start at 6 p.m. The stage program will feature singer Pantha, rapper SAMPAGNE, and headliner MAJAN.
Pantha combines German lyrics with atmospheric beats, organic instruments, and whispered vocals. SAMPAGNE represents the new generation of German rap and brings the new wave sound from Berlin. Mixing trap, drill rap, and influences from UK garage to house music, his music is versatile and unique.
MAJAN made the jump from hot tip to best newcomer of the year within a short time. His sound is a catchy and infectious mixture of rap, dancehall, and piano ballads.

Friday is presented by AOK Bremen/Bremerhaven.

On Saturday, June 24, 2023, the evening program on the big stage begins with a poetry slam at 6 p.m. Afterwards, the university will proudly present iL Civetto. The Berlin-based band has reinvented global pop. Their universal melting pop breaks with Western cultural dominance and draws its energy from the Berlin techno scene. Energy and beats of Berlin's nightlife are transformed into great pop with the instruments of a rock band.
It was possible to secure GENTLEMAN as the headliner. The reggae artist has long since made a name for himself far beyond the German music scene. He has now released his first German-language album "Blaue Stunde." What is astonishing is the striking naturalness, the weightlessness with which he succeeds – and not only when it comes to the linguistic switchover.
On both evenings, well-known DJs will continue to get the audience fired up with hot beats after the performances.
