‘Horst Festival’ was first launched in 2019 with its lab series covering art, music, and architecture. Renowned artists and experts were invited to conduct workshops with young creatives. The festival is back this summer with its new lab series. The organizers have adopted a plan to work within the constraints of the Covid-19 pandemic and hold a series of small events.
