SZENE Salzburg has been a major factor in Salzburg’s cultural and public life for more than 30 years. The non-profit organisation is best known for its annual Sommerszene festival, taking place in June/July and presenting international dance, theatre, performance, visual arts and music.
Furthermore szene runs the cultural centre republic with more than 300.000 visitors and approximately 400 events per year. The full-year programmed venue brings music concerts, theatre and comedy shows, clubbings and parties as well as contemporary performing art projects into the city.
SZENE also supports artistic production processes. It offers artist residencies including working space and public showings and provides a studio for creative development and rehearsals.
