OPEN CULTURE HALL
Cultural institution in Hall in Tirol | Austria
The Kulturlabor Stromboli is a cultural institution in the town of Hall. Surrounded by the beautiful mountainous countryside of Tyrol. It was established in 1989 with the aim of creating a venue for a lively cultural revival in the area. Today the Kulturlabor Stromboli, situated near to the metropolitan city Innsbruck, is one of the most diverse culture and communications hubs in this area and is well known throughout Austria. It holds over 100 events over the year.
At a regional level the Kulturlabor Stromboli works as a very successful platform for artistic exchanges and features an ever growing cultural network for artists in the local scene. As well as concerts and theatre you can find literature readings, cabaret, open air events, discussion groups, presentations, parties and a strong children´s program running on a very regular basis. There is also a thriving youth scene with a well known and established bar and coffee house which has grown in reputation over the years.
Experimentation and the trying out of new ideas is the motto of the organisation. This culture enables endless possibilities and new cultural adventures to be ventured into and enjoyed. It is a real bubbling cultural volcano situated in the middle of the Alps!!
Information about Hall
Hall is a small town with around 13,500 inhabitants and it lays in the middle of the Inn valley around 10km East of the main city in Tyrol, Innsbruck. Its location means it is a favourite destination for visitors coming from all around the world, both in summer and winter alike.
