International Wind Art in Northern Hesse

wind art landscape
bewegter wind e.V. organises wind art festivals and offers for wind art and intercultural communication.
Wind is a symbol of spirit and communication in almost all cultures of the world.

"bewegter wind" stages wind art in this multifaceted landscape. Wind art is fleeting, can always be experienced anew and remains unfinished in a fascinating way. At various locations - in front of forests, high-altitude landscapes, lakes or quarries - objects are created that make the wind visible and allow it to merge with the art.

The international wind art festival takes place as a competition every two years at changing locations in the region. "bewegter wind" is a landscape exhibition with a supporting programme, art competition, artists' meeting, cultural exchange, exhibition tour and children's programme.

The 11th wind art festival "bewegter wind" took place from 13th-27th August, 2023 in Wolfhagen. We are looking forward to the 12th wind art festival from 17th-31st of August, 2025.

The town of Lichtenfels is celebrating an anniversary. For 51 years, the 8 districts of Dalwigksthal, Fürstenberg, Goddelsheim, Immighausen, Münden, Neukirchen, Rhadern and Sachsenberg have formed the large municipality in Waldeck-Frankenberg. Together with the Lichtenfels-based association "bewegter wind", Lichtenfels was awarded the title "Municipality of Diversity" in 2021 by the initiative "Open for Diversity" and the district president.

bewegter wind e.V. organises wind art festivals and offers on wind art and intercultural communication. Wind is a symbol of spirit and communication in almost all cultures of the world. The special combination of nature, wind and art gets people moving and talking to each other and changes perception.

In the "Wind Land" project, we want to explore our diverse landscape near the Schaaken monastery near Lichtenfels-Immighausen together with people from Lichtenfels and the surrounding area. There, on the Hamberg, we are looking for areas for wind art installations. Under professional guidance, the people of Lichtenfels will jointly develop design ideas and implement them.

In addition, guided hikes, a children's flag workshop "Lichtenfelser Zeichen", guided tours and bicycle tours are on offer.

On Sunday, 21.8.2022 at 11.30 a.m., the complete installation will be presented to visitors with a tour, concert and picnic.

On Sunday, 28.8.2022 at 5 pm, the organisers invite you to the final concert at the Schaaken monastery ruins.
