For two years, Dr.

Heinz Hellerer Chairman of the Herrsching Cultural Association.

His first year was a great success with many events.

Then came Corona and, with the pandemic, lockdown.


Hellerer, were you able to hold events at all last year?

We had just been able to invite to our general meeting, then the first lockdown came.

In fact, we were able to invite you to two events in September and October: “Friedrich & Wiesenhütter” and the classical duo La Vigna.

Around 30 people can still fit into the fireplace room under the hygiene and distance rules.

You are lucky enough to be able to use the Kurparkschlösschen almost rent-free.

Yes, the running costs are manageable.

Thankfully, we are able to occupy the Kurparkschlösschen almost rent-free.

If we had to pay rent, we would be on the verge of collapse.

Corona does not hit the cultural association so hard, even if we had to shoot up for the two performances last year due to the small occupancy.

But we still had a buffer because both the subsidy from the district and the municipality were paid.

Fortunately, the municipality had decided not to cancel the subsidies for the clubs.

So it looked relatively good for us.

How many members does the cultural association have?

We currently have 126 members.

We even had six or seven newcomers last year, but three or four left too.

But the bottom line is that it's a plus.

Are you satisfied with the membership development?

We are very interested in rejuvenating the club.

A first step towards this will be made with the election of the board of directors on March 17th.

We were able to win Jakob Mühleisen (20) as a candidate for the advisory board.

There is also a change in the deputy chair.

Kathrin Kamal has become a mother for the second time and will retire, Catharina Geiselhart will come in for it if the members vote for her in the election.

She is an art historian and will be able to cover the field of fine arts with activities such as the “Art Rush” in the future.

The singer-songwriter Jakob Mühleisen, I suppose, is supposed to attract the young audience.

We actually want to do a series of concerts for young people and are currently working on a concept of how to make the Kurparkschlösschen compatible for young people.

Even with lower entrance fees for such events.

We are conceptually on the right track.

We are also in contact with Jan Pleines, the new Herrsching street worker.

We would like to get involved in the idea of ​​the graffiti wall.

We could imagine bringing in a professional sprayer.

Initial discussions in this regard have already taken place with Jan Pleines and our advisory board member Martin Piehler.

Martin Piehler had the idea.

In this way we might be able to retain young people, otherwise the association will slowly die out.

Our average age is quite high.

Lockdown is actually ideal for such concepts.

Yes, but we are also active online.

We now have 31 posts running on our YouTube channel.

With a focus on Herrsching artists.

Jakob Mühleisen recently recorded a concert, but the duo Faltsch Wagoni and guitarist Max Grüner are also there.

Also poetry and readings with my wife Friedrike Hellerer, with Leni Gwinner, Karin Schreiber and the German-Chinese Mei Shi are among them.

We try to somehow keep the cultural life going.
