"Inclusive Art"

Invitation to the local discussion with Prof. Dr. Andreas Fröhlich

Inklusive Kunst

...Art belongs to the life of many people, without art they do not want to be. Music, painting, poetry, sculpture or dance, express what moves people and holds them together at the core. People with disabilities can often only experience art to a very limited extent. Those who can't see would have to touch, those who can't hear, those who can't walk... some things would have to change so that everyone can experience "Inclusive Art"...

The scientist and author would like to present and exchange thoughts on this topic during the local discussion.

Introduction and moderation: Peter Michael Lupp

An event on education for cultural and sustainable development in cooperation with the VHS Regional Association Saarbrücken.

The silent breath of the future

Ulrich Grober

Book launch/Author reading/Local talk

Der leise Atem der Zukunft

At the cultural site Wintringer Chapel, sustainability has already been addressed for several years - supported by topic-specific artistic reflections. The art projects are accompanied by local discussions. Peter Michael Lupp from the Regional Association Saarbrücken traces - in dialogue with the artists, experts and the audience - the urgent questions of how to sustainably shape lifestyles, but also living spaces [biospheres].

On Sunday, October 9, the journalist (including for the ZEIT), book author and sustainability expert Ulrich Grober will be a guest on site. He will present his latest book "Der leise Atem der Zukunft - Vom Aufstieg nachhaltiger Werte in Zeiten der Krise", read passages from it and discuss with the audience.

We want to use the aura of the medieval space to reflect on ancient and at the same time very contemporary values: Serenity, empathy, self-restraint.

Ulrich Grober

Afterwards there is the possibility to stop at the country inn of the Wintringer farm.
