Let's be Friends

Become a friend and support, accompany and experience HELLERAU!

By becoming a member of the Freundeskreis HELLERAU e.V. you enter into a relationship with HELLERAU – European Center for the Arts, but above all with the people who are connected to this house: with artists from near and far, with friends of the Freundeskreis, with visitors and with the team of HELLERAU.

With your membership in the Freundeskreis HELLERAU e.V. you support HELLERAU financially. The annual contributions are exclusively for the benefit of artistic projects or cultural initiatives and activities. The artistic director will inform the friends about the use of the money. With your commitment to HELLERAU – this very special place for Dresden and far beyond – you contribute to the further anchoring of HELLERAU in the Dresdner Stadtgesellschaft and support the further development of the festival grounds.

A membership in the Freundeskreis HELLERAU e.V. means above all many discoveries and joy in the arts!
