Arena Blind Dates – Series of events in the new Bauhaus Museum Dessau

Your theatre group is looking for new members and audiences? Your class is organising an art project and needs a place to perform? You’re living nearby the Bauhaus Museum Dessau and you would like to tell about the development of the inner city in the last few years? You’re committed to intercultural exchange and you want to show your work to the public? Or is dancing your passion and you’d like to share it with others? Maybe you’re good at some kind of handicraft only less still perform and you want pass that knowledge to others? Your short stories and poems are always hidden in the drawer and this shall finally change? Is your band waiting for a chance to get finally out of the rehearsal room?…

…Guess you’re lucky! With the Open Stage in the Bauhaus Museum Dessau, there’s a new place for such activities. The ground floor of the museum with Rita McBride’s Arena is offering a space for new encounters and exchange. All this in the in the city centre of Dessau. We want to invite associations, institutions, independent groups and individuals to present their hobbies, activities and social or cultural engagement to the museum visitors in the event series Arena Blind Dates. Don’t worry: It doesn’t have to be perfect. We just want to motivate you to try something new, to experiment and to let others be a part of it.

From January 2020, Arena Blind Dates will take place every second week at the Bauhaus Museum Dessau. We would be pleased about creative suggestions from Dessau-Roßlau and the surrounding for events to join in, debate or to just watch. We cordially invite all those who would like to contribute to the series to the meeting on 16 October 2019 at 5 p.m. in the foyer of the Bauhaus Museum Dessau. We look forward to your active participation and are open to all your suggestions. If there are already clear ideas and appointment requests, these are just as welcome as vague ideas, which we would like to further develop together with you.
