Musikimpuls Dunkelsteinerwald - Kick-off und Aufbau

Die Vorbereitungen für eine gemeinsame Bewerbung mehrerer Gemeinden gemeinsam mit dem Stift Göttweig für die Landesausstellung 2023 waren bereits im Gange, als die Verschiebung des Austragungsjahres bekannt gegeben wurde. Nun soll diese Initiative neu ausgerichtet werden. Das zentrale Thema "Musik" soll die teilnehmenden Gemeinden verbinden und die regionale Identität stärken. Die große Sammlung an Musikalien im Stift Göttweig bietet die Möglichkeit, die Musik der Region wissenschaftlich aufzuarbeiten und in die Initiative einfließen zu lassen. Ein großes Potenzial wird in der Bewerbung von St. Pölten zur Kulturhauptstadt 2024 gesehen, da so auch überregional Aufmerksamkeit erregt werden kann.

Detail and implementation planning for the Wachau Advent

In recent years, a number of initiatives have established themselves in the region in late autumn and winter which have had a very positive impact on the development of tourism and thus on extending the season. Apart from the long-distance hiking trail “World Heritage Trail Wachau”, which can be easily hiked even in the colder months thanks to the mild climate, numerous cultural initiatives, such as “ELIT” (European literature days), “Wachau in Echtzeit” (Wachau in Real Time - curated by Ursula Strauss) as well as many Advent markets and culinary events have become established. The implementation of the mobility concept (bus connections) means that all municipalities in the region can now also be easily reached without a car.
