Cultural association Mecklenburg Inspires e.V.

The cultural life of a region plays a crucial role in regards to the quality of life and experience it offers to both its inhabitants and its visitors. This is the case for well established initiatives such as the UNESCO world heritage sites and the European Capitals of Culture as much as for the independent art scene, which is a forerunner in giving expression to the Zeitgeist and the contemporary identity of a place. But culture, the arts and creativity facilitate also innovation and have the power to initiate processes of economic growth, i.e. by attracting more quality tourism.

We love art, we have a passion for other cultures and we care about the future of our Region.

In order to strengthen the profile of the “German Riviera” and to animate, diversify and internationalise the cultural life of the region working in the spirit of its sustainable development, the cultural association “Mecklenburg Inspires” has been founded in September 2010 in Bad Doberan. Its founders are local tourism entrepreneurs and art sponsors.
The association has the aim to strengthen the role of arts and culture through the collaboration with international artists. The centre of all activities is the residency program “Mecklenburg Inspires”.
Artists from all over the world, from various disciplines and in different phases of their professional development come to live and work in the Region, get to know its people and artists, interact or collaborate with them in the context of specific projects, and exhibit their work.
