A Cultural Festival For Urban Development
For years now we have been working strategically on a fundamental urban revival in Feldkirch.
Fundamental in the sense of Feldkirch’s humanistic roots. Revival in the sense of cultural diversity.
These topics are made visible with a sustainable programme mainly in Feldkirch itself, but also beyond
the borders surrounding Feldkirch and the Rhine Valley. The city as a public space and POTENTIALe as
a cultural festival for urban design and development create possibilities that are atmospherically charged.
will be the venue for four different programmes: FAIR, TALENTS, PROJECTS and NETWORKS.
The focus is on the use of very different venues, the rediscovery of deserted places and abandoned premises,
and innovative projects and partnerships that once again remind Feldkirch of its dormant potential.
Programme schedules of the POTENTIALe
The fair opens its doors for the 11th time. Exhibitors from the design, fashion and photography sectors present their works, invite you to exchange ideas and offer their products for sale.
Vacant spaces, forgotten places and hidden potential of Feldkirch are uncovered and rediscovered. Here colleges, students and young designers present their current works, and demonstrate a wide variety of uses for the lost places.
Through the programme format PROJECTS, temporary activities in public areas are given a platform in which to try out.
This is possibly the most experimental format of POTENTIALe and views design as a socio-political instrument,
forcing its viewers to reconsider their usual viewpoints.

Projects and events of programme partners contribute
essentially to the variety of the festival. Companies, institutions, galleries, associations and collectives from the region benefit from this opportunity and present themselves with special
contributions within the POTENTIALe.
