PanaLobby came into being in 2015 as a reaction to the experiences and difficulties of Paula Godinez (Mexico City) and Yuyen Lin-Woywod (Taipei) as international students in Germany. Through numerous offers and activities, we have made a noticeable improvement of international students’ situation.
PanaLobby helps international students to feel welcomed and integrated. We create new opportunities for international and German students’ to exchange and cooperate. Moreover, PanaLobby sees itself as a testing platform for cross-cultural conversation that actively intervenes in KHK’s organisational structure.
We, as a group of international and German students., achieve this by giving international students not only the support they require, but also an empowering platform for them to participate actively in the structural evolution of the KHK. Benefitting both students and the University.
Since the semi-autonomous Kunsthochschule Kassel does not have its own “International Office”. There is often confusion regarding which office is responsible for international students. The work of PanaLobby in recent years is therefore vital for international students.
