Welcome to The Arts Society Hamburg

Online lectures

During the current Coronavirus, like most organisations and museums, we have been unable to meet for our normal lectures and socialise as we would like to.  So we have been running our lectures live on Zoom since July and will continue to do this until we can safely meet face to face again.  It has been very successful and we have had a great turnout, including lots more guests as people from anywhere (in the world!) can watch from the comfort of their home.  

 

We are running our 5th live online lecture on Wednesday 16 December, a special Christmas event that we have added to our programme to mark the 250th anniversary of the birth of Beethoven:

 

Wednesday 16 December at 7 pm (CET)

 

"BEETHOVEN AT 250 - Classical Music’s Greatest Revolutionary"

 

by Sandy Burnett

 

You can use Zoom on your computer or iPad and even your iPhone.  These lectures are running live, they are not a film and you can ask the lecturer questions and see who is watching.

 

Full details about this lecture and the lecturer (and our programme for the season 2020 - 2021) can be found here on our website under “lectures” and if you would like to take part, contact us at hamburg@theartssociety.org for registration.  Guests are always welcome.

 

In January 2021 we are planning a live online Wine Tasting, to celebrate the New Year.  Watch this space for further details.

 

 

 

Pat Pledger and the Committee

 
The British Decorative and Fine Arts Society of Hamburg e.V. (BRIDFAS) was founded in 1987 to stimulate interest in the decorative and fine arts and to promote a greater awareness of international cultural heritage. Its head office is based in London and it is a leading arts education charity with over 385 Societies worldwide and over 90,000 members. In 2017 the name was changed to The Arts Society and we became The Arts Society Hamburg e.V. In 2018 we celebrated our 30th anniversary and the Arts Society celebrated its 50th!

The Arts Society Hamburg provides an annual programme of illustrated lectures for its members, given in English, mostly by lecturers from the UK, chosen for their expert knowledge about the arts. Study days are also provided, as well as visits to museums and places of interest both in Germany and abroad.

Die British Decorative and Fine Arts Society of Hamburg e.V. (BRIDFAS)  wurde 1987 gegründet, um das Interesse an dekorativen und bildenden Künsten zu wecken und ein größeres Bewusstsein für das internationale Kulturerbe zu fördern.
