A central goal of my work is to establish the Ostwestfalen-Lippe region and the city of Detmold in particular as a contact point and inspiring location for creative professionals. I have already achieved a great deal with the relocation and expansion of the media production department at TH OWL and the establishment of KreativInstitut.OWL on the Kreativ Campus Detmold. But the journey is not over yet. Science, culture and business need to be closely interlinked and an innovative future creatively shaped.
