The Cultural Themes are back! At the initiative of the Halle Museum Network, whose spokesmen have been the Francke Foundations together with the Hallesche Salinemuseum e.V. since September 2019, the City of Halle has decided to organise Citywide Cultural Themes from 2021 to 2030. Cultural Themes have a long tradition in Halle. The Cultural Themes 2000 - 2010, which were carried out under the auspices of the Francke Foundations, and the annual event format offered by the City of Halle since 2014 under the title HalleThemes continue to have a visible impact today. The new Cultural Themes build on this tradition and aim to reach and involve large sections of the city's society by taking up current topics from society and illuminating and discussing them with different cultural formats from variety of perspectives. All actors in the city of Halle from the cultural, social, religious, educational, scientific and economic sectors are invited to participate.
We are pleased to serve as co-intendant of the first Cultural Theme 2021 together with the Hallesche Salinemuseum e.V. and the Werkleitz Gesellschaft e.V. On Thursday, 5 March 2020, the concept, the logo and first ideas for 2021 were presented to the press.
