1300 Euro for Ars Electronica Educational Initiatives

This year I contributed to the Ars Electronica Conference, which took place at JKU in several ways. I was a jury member in the category digital communities, I moderated the respective award ceremony and I participated in the creative question challenge of the Ars Electronica Futurelab.

For my engagement I would have received in sum 1.300 Euro. I waived the fee because I am part of the JKU Alma Mater program and I receive a full salary from the Leuphana University. I think the money is of much better use in the variety of ARS Electronica educational programs, which do a great job to inspire young people to engage with digital technologies and think about what the world should look like.
