    The Art of a Culture of Hope3

    a long-term projec by Jessica Huber and James Leadbitter about Hope & Fear and the space for potential


    With this years festival subject matter «Zweitausendjetzt» (twothousendnow), B-Sides has initiated a longterm platform for important macrosocial projects, such as «The Art of a Culture of Hope»

    «Hope just means another world might be possible, not promised, not guaranteed.
    Hope calls for action; action is impossible without hope.» – Rebecca Solnit


    The B-Sides festival was initiated over 11 years ago to support and foster extraordinary music and other arts. Over the past few years the B-Sides has also grown to an important platform for societal themes. We want our audience not only to experience beautiful music during our festival but also want to confront them with significant topics that concern our world, culture, and our future.

    With this year’s projects The art of a culture of hope (founded by the Swiss and English artists Jessica Huber and James Leadbitter) we want to communicate a matter of the heart, and confront our surrounding with two of the most essential and powerful emotions «Hope» and «Fear». The idea is to build all of the festival departments based on this concept, and together build new spaces for potential.
