Pre-meeting trip to Augsburg, a city on the rise
Augsburg is not only the city of Brecht, Mozart and the Fugger family, but also home to a multifaceted and innovative theatre and arts scene. Together with local theatre practitioners, the participants of this pre-meeting trip will dig for the city‘s cultural roots and artistic debates, amble through city-life, and visit unusual theatre locations, like a gasometer or a techno club.
Online registration for the pre-meeting excursion is now closed. If you would like to join it, you can subscribe yourself at the meeting point. You will be able to settle the participation fee at the spot.
