2020

The festival 2020 could not take place due to the Corona pandemic. The cancellation was made on 25 March 2020 in consultation with the district and city of Recklinghausen and with the Ministry of Culture and Science of the State of North Rhine-Westphalia in accordance with the orders to contain the spread of the Corona virus, to protect the health system from massive burdens and to protect particularly vulnerable people from infection.

Despite the cancellation, the team was able to realise a few projects in 2020, among others:

Also:
Project Lernpark. A cultural education project funded by Stiftung Mercator
Summer Holiday Workshops for young people
