Lichtspiele des Westens

On the Boulevard Heine between Felsenkeller and König-Albert-Bridge

Next event

Saturday 7 December, 2019

Twice a year, the Quarter of Arts and Skilled Crafts along the Boulevard Heine becomes a stage for Bohei & Tamtam and the Lichtspielen des Westens.

The goal of these peaceful interventions through artistic means is to strengthen and shine the limelight on the character of this area as a center for art culture and creative productions and to highlight the participatory potential of our city.

In the summer, all facets of (local) craftsmanship are featured at our art market festival Bohei & Tamtam. On the day of  Bohei & Tamtam alongside the new and old producers from the former industrial district of Plagwitz-Lindenau, Boulevard Heine becomes a stage for the cultural diversity of our quarter. The annual Worker’s parade in the afternoon is co-designed by numerous participants from the quarter and offers a public forum for articulating questions and concerns about the district’s development.

When it’s winter, the Lichtspiele des Westens makes the neighborhood around the Heine-Boulevard glow. Together residents and institutions fit windows, house facades, shops and trees along the street with light installations.

Join in now!

We invite everyone who want to be an active part of this year’s Lichtspiele des Westens to get into contact with us!
