Festival der Regionen

 

The “festival of regions“ is one of the most famous and high-profile festivals for contemporary art and culture in Austria. Beyond urban conurbations and art centres, every two years it explores and conquers a region or location in Upper Austria. The festival’s aims include sensitisation to contemporary art and culture and the strengthening of regional initiatives in the field of cultural work. Alongside international, supra-regional and local participation of artists, it strives for cooperation with associations, institutions and committed people. Education, open dialogue and connections between art and everyday culture are the key strategies to anchor the festival in the location and to leave the clearest possible mark behind. Above all, however, it is a question of addressing and involving the greatest number of people on site – and celebrating a great festival of the arts in which there is a sustained liaison between sharpness of content, artistic substance, living together and humour.

The “festival of regions“ was founded in 1993.
