3. Celebrate Portuguese and Cape Verdean music
Festival atlântico at the Philharmonie celebrates the musical diversity and cultural richness of the Portuguese, Cape Verdean and Brazilian music scenes. The sounds, instruments and forms of expression they present are rather unknown to most of us, making these concerts a refreshing and surprising experience. Definitely check out Mario Lucio & Os Kriols this weekend, as well as Dom La Nena.
4. Question the impact of community through pictures
In parallel with the CinEast Film Festival (see second recommendation above), Neimenster is openings its doors to a photography exposition on communities, different forms thereof, and its role in both identity and belonging as well as division and exclusion. What does community mean to you? Curated by Marta Szymanska.
5. Get informed at Home Expo
The Home Expo, a fair dedicated to housing, construction, renovation, furnishing and decoration, is hosting 300 specialists from across the Greater Region at LuxExpo this weekend. If you're looking for expert advice or services for your (future), home this is the place to be. PS: Next door, the Climate Expo is taking place as well!
