Marijke Lukowicz

Mediator in North Rhine-Westphalia in tandem with Sophia Trollmann

"For me, art and creative action are essential in a democratic society. Involving as many different people as possible – even without a professional background – in artistic processes in a responsible way is what makes the New Patrons method so relevant for me."
