GrensWerte World Exhibition

The GrensWerte World Exhibition is over - below the closing program after four years GrensWerte:

The start of the GrensWerte World Exhibition on 21 March will reunite old friends and create new friendships, and two days later we will exhibit everything that GrensWerte has brought forth. On Sunday 6 April, there is a family day planned especially for the little ones. On 12 April we have the Living Marketplace, a lively platform for artists and cultural organisations, companies and other interested parties.


Hallo, hoe gaat’s met dir?: Stefan van den Berg sings the GrensWerte hymn with three choirs.

Blumenschieβen: The German artist Swaantje Güntzel transforms the surrounding flora by shooting flowers seeds into the air.

Cultural debate led by Jan-Christoph Tonigs (artistic leader of Kloster Bentlage), with dr. Dorothee Feller (vice-president Bezirksregierung Münster), dr. Elisabeth Schwenzow (EUREGIO director), mr. drs. Michael Sijbom (mayor of Losser) and drs. Hero Klinker (Cultural and Social team leader, Overijssel Province). The exhibition will be opened for the public after the debate.
