'FOREWORD by Mayor Mag.a Christine Oppitz-Plörer for the Festival of Culture'
A glance on the annual event calendar shows the great importance of art and culture in our city. Innsbruck is known for its rich traditions and its cultural life far beyond regional borders. However, it is fundamental for art to constantly develop and find new, different and unique ways of expression. It is this courage to embrace new ideas, which defines the Festival of Culture of the Camerata Europaea (CE) and the Camerata Innsbruck (CINNS). Tradition and innovation fuse with each other the same way as different forms of art and performance are combined to an exciting experience. The festival also provides a platform for cultural dialogue, which is essential for a diverse society. As cultural advisor I am particularly happy that the festival takes place in our alpine town Innsbruck.
