Network for the connected

Founded in 2002 as the first alumni association of an art university, forum - University of Arts Linz now has more than 600 members. The networking and further education platform for alumni appeals to everyone from business, art, culture and the creative scene who is interested in the activities of the association and its members. The connection between the University of Arts Linz and its former students is maintained through forum - University of Arts Linz and enables a continuous exchange from which both sides benefit considerably. On the one hand, forum - University of Arts Linz offers a range of events, further education and direct career support; on the other hand, the University of Arts Linz gains a new public through the visibility of its graduates, which in turn reveals its versatility and quality.
