Cultural Center Kulturhaus Würth with the library Bibliothek Frau Holle
The cultural center Kulturhaus Würth with the Bibliothek Frau Holle library has been awarded the German Arts Sponsorship Award 2019 in the category “Large companies with up to 50,000 employees”. The award was presented by Kulturkreis der deutschen Wirtschaft im BDI e.V. (Association of Arts and Culture of the German Economy at the Federation of German Industries e.V.) and its partners ZDF and Handelsblatt. The creative support concept and the sustainable cultural and social relevance of the Künzelsau cultural institution, which was set up back in 2017 based on an idea proposed by Carmen Würth, won over the jury: Local clubs can book the fully accessible hall, with a capacity of 100 people, free of charge. Carmen Würth’s personal library featuring more than 8,000 volumes is freely accessible in Bibliothek Frau Holle, and the informal meetings bringing people together to sing, as well as “story hours” for young and old alike, are popular across all generations. The flair of the institution, with its charming interior, is also characterized by creative programs aimed at children and young people.
Kulturhaus Würth offered more than 70 events honoring the spoken, sung and written word and featuring authors and actors such as Peter Wohlleben, Barbara Auer or Hannelore Hoger. More than 7,700 guests, 850 of them children, visited Kulturhaus Würth in 2019.
