Schlierer Bänklefest / A sense of home in rural communities

Schlierer Bänklefest
Schlierer Bänklefest

A sad development is unfolding in the rural regions of Germany, as many local residents are increasingly losing touch with their communities. By relocating their lives into the digital world, they are losing valuable social contact with their neighbors and, at the same time, the familiar sense of “home”. The Bench Festival, during which countless benches are placed outside houses throughout the community, brings people together again in an individual and highly personal way. It is an opportunity to discover, to get (re)acquainted – to create a real sense of “us”.
