ART & CULTURAL EVENTS
Jugend- & Kulturprojekt e.V. has a long experience in the organisation and management of art and cultural events. From 2004 to 2010, the association carried out the Sun Flower Festival, an international Festival of music, arts and culture which was held in Freiberg, Germany. The main aim of the festival was to enhance community building and active participation through music, culture, arts and volunteering. The Sun Flower Festival was organized on a voluntary basis and was a non-profit event, consisting of 5 music stages which hosted music bands from all over the world, whilst holding workshops such as theatre playing, belly dancing, yoga, juggling, fire performing, photography, performing, literature & poetry led by international performers and artists. Volunteers from all over the world were supporting the organisation and implementation of the festival while participating in art workshops.
From 2007 to 2013 Jugend- & Kulturprojekt e.V. organized the Burning Bizarre Convention, a Gathering of fire performers, jugglers and circus artists from all over the world where they participated in juggling and circus arts workshops and had the opportunity to share their skills and experiences and interact culturally with each other. The last two days of the festival, the artists were invited to present their skills on stage through an Open Stage and a Gala Show. At the Gala Show, known fire and circus artists performed in public, in the city of Dresden. These two large scale events have greatly contributed to our event management experience in the culture and art sectors. The Burning Bizarre Convention was also a non-profit event supported by volunteers, artists and performers.
Since 2011, Jugend- & Kulturprojekt e.V. has organized cultural and art events within the framework of international projects in Dresden and other European cities promoting the culture of remembrance and the culture of commemoration, Human Rights, Solidarity, Democracy, Empathy, Equality, Understanding, Acceptance, Inclusion and Diversity. An event management team is responsible for the organisation, promotion and execution of the association’s events. Moreover, we cooperate with international artists, performers, directors, film makers and curators and together we plan the activities of our events.
Our events vary; from theatre and dance performances, concerts, film screenings, art exhibitions to live art workshops and street performances. All events organized by Jugend- & Kulturprojekt e.V. are non-profit and are open to the public fostering community building, civic engagement and active participation at local, national and international level.
