Metelen (D): Blue peace lamb herd

17. April 2017

Everyone is important – all are equivalent.

Blauschaf Friedensherde

The Blue Shepherd is a global social art project by the artist Bertamaria Reetz, a symbol of mutual tolerance and peace. The authorized copies of the works are end-processed in cooperation with the non-profit workspace for people with disabilities of the social enterprises Cologne gGmbH in Cologne. This cooperation has played a significant role in the peace message.

The initiator of the convent Metelen Ingrid Hagen has now brought a peace herd with Blauschaf lambs to Metelen. For this she has been able to win over 150 godparents, who have their pastel pots grazed on the meadow of the St. Sophia House from 22 March to Easter Monday (17 April 2017). Whoever strolls along the river during this time can enjoy the ultramarin blue peace herd as a work of art.

From now on the blue peace lamb herd are allowed to leave the pasture at 10 o’clock every morning and gathered again at 7 pm. Anyone who wants to help with the herd raising can be in time in front of the entrance of the St.Sophienhaus.

On Easter Monday the lambs will be handed over to their godparents with a music program, which I will open with a sound performance for alphorn & live electronics. Further information about the Münsterländer Friedensherde can be found on the Internet pages of the Metelen Monastery. Continue reading »

In 2002, the stories were able to listen for several months in the Euro buses transport companies of Munster. The german audio book CD was the first publication of NEWSIC together with the Foundation, located in the Münsterland Schöppingen artists, guest appearances in the stories the authors of the stop in 2001 as a scholarship, and the Foundation for Art and Cultural Münsterland.

Martin Heckmann viewed during the bus ride into the sky and lets his thoughts wander, while Matthias Göritz his own way has found rich in artistic portrait form. The Red Lights of Jan Groh tell a true story of the frontier in 1945. The digitized voices of nightingales by Dorothée Hahne become melancholic songs and Malgorzata Saramonowicz finished a story of another kind about searching god. Continue reading »
