In February 2020 we visited the Viennese office of the European Forum Alpbach in order to find out more about the strutures behind the annual festivities and seminars in Alpbach and to talk about how arts and culture influence the overall structure of the festival. Elisabeth Schack, head of Arts and Culture, and Clara Rindler-Schantl, presented our members what it means to present art to an audience that is not used to it and how these encounters are even more powerful. And of course we found out that the festival is run by an almost all-female staff. What else?!
