Andre Dekker is one of the speakers of the kick-off symposium of Urbane Künste in Bochum
The mission of Urban Arts Ruhr is to develop and realise artistic productions in urban space in cooperation with regional networks
and partners, aspiring to give testimony to the urban attitude to life of the cultural metropolis Ruhr, to identify new perspectives and to bring about sustainable changes via the means of art. The kick-off to Urbane Kuenste Ruhr (Urban Arts Ruhr) is a 2-day symposium in Bochum, accompanying the artistic light work Pulse Park by Canadian-Mexican artist Rafael Lozano-Hemmer. The kick-off symposium sketches an impressive picture of the programme work of Urbane Künste Ruhr for the next three years. It opens up perspectives of new alliances, outlines opportunities for art and would quite simply like to inspire in the sense of a lively cultural metropolis Ruhr. Listen to inspiring speeches of renowned artists, get into dialogue with people engaged in culture and experience the first presentation of the programme of Urban Arts Ruhr.
