The “Schlachthoffestival” is a contemporary multi-genre project that first took place in April 2022 and will start the next round in May 2023. The festival connects international and local artists* from the fields of visual arts, music, literature, theater and performance. In the course of the Capital of Culture, the Gruber slaughterhouse in Traunkirchen will also be used for a weekend in April / May 2024. The abattoir will thus become an off-space, a new meeting place for regional and national artists, inviting visitors to linger. For the first time, artists will also offer workshops and give lectures on site in 2024. In this way, the public will be more closely involved in the art space and, starting from the Schlachthof, will also be able to explore Traunkirchen in an artistic and aesthetic way.
