Deckblatt vom amerikanischen Kinderbuch "Schachfest in Ströbeck" aus den 30er Jahren

The Power of Culture

This book, available in English as well as in German, emphasises the importance of culture, which has made the Cultural Villages of Europe network into a lively European community since its inception in 1999. It contains reports on the different, unique cultural traditions in each Cultural Village which showcase European cultural diversity. Many revealing interviews also make it clear just how much cultural exchange, i.e.: private, personal contact between people, has brought the Cultural Villages network together and created close friendships.

Village Portraits - The People are the

Village

Catalogue of the Ströbeck Chess Museum Photographic Exhibition in the Halberstadt Urban Museum. Thirteen photographers from England, France, Belgium, the Netherlands and the Czech Republic. When the Dutch village of Wijk aan Zee declared itself a European Cultural Village in 1999, the village arranged two events – one which featured ten visits from villages that would later form part the “Cultural Villages of Europe” network, to which Ströbeck also belongs, and another encompassing ten other projects for amateur and professional film makers, thinkers, youths, seniors, sculptors, musicians, as well as for village experts, playwrights and photographers. The project for photographers was a competition called “Village Portraits“. The brief was: “Portray a village through the medium of the people who live there.” Some of the photographs entered in this competition were displayed in a special exhibition from 4th September – 7th November 2010 and were preserved in this illustrated book, which also contains interesting background information in German and English.
