In his will, Emil Possehl, a businessman and senator of Lübeck, bequeathed all his business interests to the Possehl Foundation, which celebrated its 100th jubilee in 2019.
For a vibrant culture in Lübeck: it’s round two for our programme! The Foundation is funding another 80 “cultural sparks” - we are now looking forward to plenty of wonderful events in winter and spring!
Plenty of culture despite corona: more than 700 Cultural Sparks events of all kinds have taken place in Lübeck since the summer! Our picture gallery gives you an impression of all the inspirational creative energy in our city, and so we are delighted that the programme will be continued next year.
More international than for a long time: the Possehl Engineering Prize 2020 for graduates of Lübeck Technical University goes to Pablo Andres Amador Rodriguez from Columbia. Prizes also went to Jamiu Damilola Mustapha from Nigeria and Patrick Scheunemann from Germany. They talk about the subjects of their impressive work in Science Slams.
The 57th competition for the Possehl Music Prize was held on 17 and 18 November at the Lübeck College of Music and could be viewed live on the music college’s streaming channel. Our sincere congratulations go to Ariane Bresch (bassoon), Gueli Kim (viola), Bennet Morrice-Ortmann (viola), Raphael Zinner (cello) and Lucas Huber-Sierra (piano)!
