International fame on the River Main
Not every region can boast as many world-class art academies as Frankfurt and Offenbach.
Together with representatives from all four institutions (Frankfurt University of Music and Performing Arts, Frankfurt am Main State Academy of Fine Arts – Städel School, Offenbach Academy of Art and Design, Gießen Institute for Applied Theatre Studies), a concept was developed to shine a spotlight on the potential of the academies and their students, and to create a shared platform for emerging talent.
This gave rise to the ‘Festival of Young Talents’, which been held in Frankfurt and Offenbach every two years since then.
