Report from the 1st International Sand Painting Festival in Hamburg. 

3 days of sand painting festival (from the 15.-17.02.2016) in the Elbarkaden Lounge in hamburg, Sandschmiede… bin nicht sicher, eventuell Sand forge of Europe.
21 artists from 6 countries arrived to the Elbarkaden Lounge at the Hafencity, after some long trips.
The task was the creation of 2 shows, a „Love Story“ and „Around the world“.
It was important to the organizers to filter out the best with the complete package:
1. Appearance on the stage
2. Live performance in combination with the sand painting.
3. Combination of the music
42 shows were sighted on three days. All artists were very satisfied with the top organization, shuttle service, location and the whole program.
One of the programs were to bring them the beauty of Hamburg a little bit more closer, during a boot trip.
It was a perfectly successful event, an enrichment for the international artists, who were able to develop thanks to the other painters and the competent jury.
Ultimately, the choice fell on:
