Culture as an elixir of life – that's the motto of this non-profit organisation that offers cultural activites for people over 50, such as seminars and workshops to support creative/ artistic work with older people, especially in an inter-generational and intercultural context. The name means “third spring”, an expression that refers to a new lease on life. Dritter Frühling delves into matters as diverse as life philosophies, experiences of history, everyday occurences, objects of art, culture and politics, perspectives of how the environmen is designe, all of which are themes of past workshops, to name but a few.
These are issues are then experienced in a new way since there are probed using a wide range of artistic media. For most participants, this is a first time experience, unaccustomed while also liberating, making what was considered to be familiar appear different, in a different light. This is especially thrilling when a group of older people have a chance to interact with younger people. Increasingly, projects in which people from different backgrounds work together have been in high demand. Positive experiences encourage people to take more risks and explore more than they otherwise would.
