UN LAB WAWERN Abschlusspräsentation

Presentation of the pilot project “UN Lab Wawern” – Artists explore Wawern (RLP) in a unique project

The “UN Lab Wawern”, the first of a total of three labs, is a one-week residency project in Wawern, Rhineland-Palatinate, taking place from 2 July to 9 July 2013 in cooperation with hannahmadance and the Association for the Promotion of the Former Synagogue. The performing artists Abdul Moaty and Nora Zrika from the “hannahmadance” team have been invited to the UN Lab Wawern to realise an artistic project within a week that deals with the town of Wawern.

As part of the UN Lab Wawern, the artists will explore local stories, traditions and people. The aim is to break down prejudices against rural areas and to sensitise and open up the village structures to art and culture as well as to diverse ways of life. Wawern, once home to a small Jewish community, is a village of 600 inhabitants close to the Luxembourg-Belgium border.

The artists’ results can be viewed on 9 July from 12 noon at the Bürgerhaus Weinbergstrasse 43, 54441 Wawern. The presentation will be followed by the exchange and networking platform “UNacademy”. In the “UNacademy”, visitors, artists, residents, politicians, cultural and administrative staff come together in round-table discussions to discuss cultural policy issues and develop solutions. The aim is to learn from each other and build a bridge through dialogue – between cultural policy, administration, activism, art and culture.
