Annual Programme 2019
We’re always looking ahead! And so it gives us great pleasure to present our plans and projects for the coming year. In our 2019 programme, you’ll find our exhibitions and exhibition-related events, our education programmes for young and old, our excursions, and our symposiums and concerts.
We would particularly like to draw your attention to DAS Forum. DAS Forum, meaning THE Forum – though here “DAS” also stands for “Draiflessen, Archiv, and Sammlung” (Draiflessen, archive, and collection) – is a new space within the Draiflessen Collection dedicated to interdisciplinary exchange on the subject of family businesses. It was launched in November 2018 with a presentation to accompany the symposium “Estate and Family Names Ending with -meier in Tecklenburger Land”. DAS Forum is designed to be a place for study, research, and dialogue, and to provide space for changing presentations than can be visited any time during our regular opening hours.
The extraordinarily positive feedback we have received since our opening as a non-profit institution has been highly motivating. We’re full of enthusiasm, energy and ideas for making the Draiflessen Collection even more of a cultural partner in the region and a popular destination on Germany’s cultural map.
We hope you enjoy discovering all that we have to offer. We look forward to your visit – and to many stimulating and rewarding encounters in Mettingen.
