The Multiplica festival is a cultural and artistic project initiated by the Rotondes which started in 2015 with a first conference entitled “What is digital art? Driven by the will of some members of the team to create a festival around digital and multimedia arts in Luxembourg, the project has grown through its biennial editions (2017, 2019, 2021) and has become an important meeting point for everyone who is interested in arts that use current technologies and in the many themes related to the digitalisation of our daily lives, such as the impact of technologies on our environment or digital exclusion.

If there is one Luxembourg literary event that cannot be ignored, it is the Walfer Bicherdeeg.
For the 26th edition of the largest book fair in Luxembourg, which will take place on 20 and 21 November, the theme “Magic words and a wonderful future” invites us to focus on discovery and imagination in a world strongly marked by the pandemic.
On this occasion and during the presentation of the Lëtzebuerger Buchpräis 2021, Kultur lx joins forces with Kulturkanal, Radio 100,7, the Federation of Luxembourg Publishers and the National Centre for Literature to present portraits of Luxembourg authors. Thanks to an original principle, the writers will read an extract from their latest books while the illustrator Antoine “Tunn” Grimée draws their portraits. This playful and contemporary format will enable the Buchpräis nominees for literature (Jemp Schuster, Tullio Forgiarini, Nathalie Ronvaux, Jean Back, Guy Helminger) and children’s books (Marina Fonseca & Lisa Junius, Marie Isabelle Callier, Sonja Bintner) to be discovered.
Let’s go for a month of reading, literary encounters and fun in November!

On 16 and 17 October 2021 TRAFFIK THEATER will bring its children’s show Babar, der kleine Elefant back to the Wiener Konzerhaus with the support of Kultur|lx.
More than 80 years after the first edition of this book, BABAR inspires young and old with its poetry and the power of the unique music composed by Francis Poulenc between 1940 and 1945. Using Chinese shadow theatre, Dan Tanson tells the famous Story of Babar, the little elephant, and invites fans of slightly older tales on a sonic journey full of poetry and suspense.
