Ceramania festival

The Ceramania festival is back again for the seventh time! This weekend, artisans and not only will come together to celebrate all things ceramics and porcelain. The organizers promise two jam-packed days during which you can explore one-of-a-kind collections by local artists, chat with masters of their crafts, shop to your heart’s content, and even take part in various fun activities, including workshops where you will learn how to hand create your first (or not) art object.

While the Manege is gearing up to host its next major exhibition, it never ceases to please its visitors and passers-by alike with open-air installations. These days, the hall’s square became the setting for a photo exhibition organized by the Nochlezhka charity organization. The exhibition is meant to raise awareness about homelessness by presenting photographs taken by people who have no roof over their heads.

If you’d like to learn more about the origin of Easter and its traditions, the currently running exhibition at Annenkirche is something you’d not want to miss out on. With celebrations on April 17 (Catholic Easter) and April 24 (Orthodox Easter) looming ahead, this Lutheran church has organized an interactive installation for everyone wishing to dive deep into the holiday’s historical context, experience all the Easter-related events firsthand, and become familiar with traditional games and customs.
