The 18 project partners of the cross-border project "Pierres Numériques – Digitale Steine" form a network to build a dynamic project of highlighting and promoting the remarkable heritage of the Greater Region through innovative digital works, techniques and tools. Within the framework of this project, the Campus Design of the University of Applied Sciences Trier has carried out the following actions:


  1. 30.08.2016 – 16.09.2016 “FreedomBus”

The first stage of the project was carried out in August / September 2016. With the help of artistic activities (creation of works of art in interdisciplinary workshops, theater and music performances, exhibitions, video mappings etc.) as well as sociology and history workshops, people were sensitized to historical and cultural processes in Europe and the resulting cultural heritage.


2. 21.09.2017 – 24.09.2017 - "aproposluther"

As part of the "aproposluther" project, a wooden construction with an interactive installation was built in front of and in the Constantine Basilica in Trier, which dealt with the life and work of Martin Luther. On the occasion of the 500th anniversary of the Reformation, the interactive installation offered visitors at five stations the opportunity to playfully deal with the life and work of Martin Luther.


  1. 12.10.2018 – 14.10.2018  - "Design and Culture Days Trier"

From October 12 to 14, 2018, the Campus for Design at Trier University of Applied Sciences celebrated an inspiring festival that presented the creative potential of the city of Trier and its students. Around 60 events and exhibitions took place on campus, attracting regional and international visitors. Places like the Porta Nigra in Trier city center were staged artistically. As the event took place as part of the Karl Marx Year 2018 (Karl Marx's 200th birthday), the work of the philosopher and social critic was one of the topics that students, lecturers and artists dealt with critically and creatively.
