Dear members of the Hanseatic League,

dear artists,

I am glad to send you the announcement for the art project “HANSEartWORKS” with the overall topic “People-Locations-Dreams”.

The hanseatic town of Brilon is the host city of the 40th international Hanseatic Days, taking place between the 4th and the 7th June of 2020.

For the past 13 years, HANSEartWORKS has been a core element of the yearly celebrated event. Brilon is expectantly looking forward to be a platform for artistic exchange under this year’s topic “People-Locations-Dreams”.

We are looking forward to your works, in form of film or photography, in which you should portray your hometown, local community and your dreams.
