There is always something to see and hear in the city and on the stages in Osnabrück - from small fine highlights to international concerts and major events. This year in particular, there are over 200 events to mark the anniversary of "375 Years of the Peace of Westphalia" alone. And then there are the hidden events you won't want to miss! You'll find info and tickets in the respective event - for some you can simply attend for free without a ticket, for others you can book online right away.
On 24 February 2024, the war in Ukraine will enter its third year. To mark this anniversary, artist Volker-Johannes Trieb is initiating an artistic intervention in the city centre of Osnabrück - for peace - against war. On this day, people will read peace texts in many places in the city, simultaneously, for one hour. They do it in parks, in cafés, on streets, on buses, in squares. Each group of readers will carry a white fork from the art installation "FORX Pitchforks for Peace", which Trieb showed at City Hall at the end of 2023, in order to be recognised as participants in the intervention. Afterwards, the participants will meet at the market in front of the Westphalian Peace Town Hall. Lord Mayor Katharina Pötter will give a speech.
The Osnabrück Chamber of Crafts is a partner of the campaign, giving a new perspective to its motto "Making a difference together". The Erich Maria Remarque Peace Centre and the West Lower Saxony Literature Office will select text suggestions. Anyone can take part and it is possible to read your own choice.
For more information, please contact Volker Johannes Trieb.
