Together for Nepal’s Children: From 25.08. through 29.08.2015, the first 24Hz Festival for Urban Media Art took place in Cologne. It was organized by the non-profit organization ROOTS & ROUTES Cologne e.V. in collaboration with the humanitarian initiative BKB Charity. The organizers could not have imagined a better start. More than 400 visitors came to see the opening vernissage, the kick-off for the five-day international media art festival. At the opening, Dr. Gerrit Lautner and Dr. Christian Afflerbach reported on their organization’s work and their commitment for Nepal’s children.
Ninety-five artists from nine countries, twenty-four events – the first 24Hz Festival for Urban Media Art was an unqualified success.
