The event invites you to blaze new trails between art and crafts

A combined team from Otelo Goisern, Hand.Werk.Haus Salzkammergut and Otelo eGen are working in close collaboration with the market village of Bad Goisern as part of the 2024 European Capital of Culture Bad Ischl Salzkammergut Region to create an exchange program with international and regionals craftspersons and artists. The activities will begin in the spring of 2023. Workshops, exhibitions, events and other formats will take place in selected locations in and around the market village of Bad Goisern, from the outer limits to the heart of the Salzkammergut region. A new space for encounters in the Hand.Werk.Haus Salzkammergut is intended to serve as a “central point of departure, base camp and space for action”. In addition to this, open spaces, galleries and workshops are being planned. Through SCALA, a shared space for experimentation with international points of connection will be created. It is intended for the local population, schools, businesses in the region, cooperating associations and cultural institutions and, of course, all of the visitors.
