Scene of the event:
Since many years, the German-Nicaraguan Library
has turned into a cultural forum which goes far beyond literature, lesson and learning and offers space for festivals, expos, literature circles, concerts and plays.The festival of scenic arts Bertolt Brecht:
The library spreads the cultural diversity of Nicaragua through social networks to give a voice to artists in times of Corona Virus. This goal shall as well be pursued in the virtual festival of scenic arts Bertolt Brecht from 14th to 16th August of 2020.
Current difficulties of artists in Nicaragua:
Particularly the artists are affected by the pandemic which limits the realization of cultural events and professional conmissions.

The library hopes to promote the labor of artists by the festival. Therefore, it organises the event and provides technical equipment for the digital recording, filming, logistics and a snack.

certificates of participation
nose-and-mouth masks of the festival
- and material kits according to artistic orientation (e.g. with make-up, circus materials, stationery, books, prevention material against Corona etc.)

We want to support with regard to the costs of mouth-nose-masks with about 8 euros per unit and the snack and transport of around 23 euros per person, too.
