Welcome to The Vienna Projectâ€™s Closing Events!
Our Closing Ceremony takes place on 18. October 2014, from 19:30-21:00 at the Austrian National Library at the Hofburg. The â€œNaming Memorialâ€ follows at Josefsplatz, from 21:00-midnight. The forecast is for sunshine and balmy weather!
Plans are underway to present a thoughtful and moving â€œClosing Ceremonyâ€ with speakers and letter readers, a memory map and contemporary music, followed by a â€œNaming Memorialâ€ that envelops the viewer with an overwhelming sense of loss pervading the space.
This edition of The Vienna Projectâ€™s newsletter features a number of downloadable items, plus links to our programs, posted online.
