Art, culture and society

At the College of Humanities (CDH), we provide a forum for building bridges between culture and teaching, between art and innovation, and between student life and new technology.

Our cultural activities are carried out mainly through EPFL Pavilions, which serves as an artistic hub for the EPFL community and the general public. ArtLab gives our School the perfect place for hosting large exhibitions as well as smaller events like concerts, projection art, artistic performances and conferences.

Our CDH-Culture program puts on a variety of events across campus for EPFL students, researchers and staff to enjoy. The program also runs a website where students and staff members can win free tickets to shows throughout the Lake Geneva region. CDH-Culture is responsible for managing and promoting various art installations on campus.

As early as 2021, the College of Humanities launches its THEMA project: each year, to explore a notion via the humanities and hard sciences through various activities involving students, teachers, researchers and the general public.
