The Festival

The World Living Statues Festival (WLSF) has evolved in thirteen years into the world’s most prominent festival which focuses purely on street artists who perform as living statues; an unique urban art form that continues to amaze and entertain audiences of all ages. At the moment there are about 400 worldwide professional living statues. They all joined the WLSF and form the basis of the unique biennial festival in Arnhem. The upcoming edition of the festival is in the weekend of October 4, 5 and 6, 2019. On October 6th is the Worldchampionship and on October 4th is Statues by Night in Ede.

Artistic, touching and humorous

From the very beginning WLSF has had a huge appeal to young and old. Each festival edition has introduced more than 200.000 visitors to 200 artistic, eloquent and/or funny living statues. On the art form itself the impact of the festival is huge. Since John Eicke, the new Artistic Director of the International WLSF, was chosen World Champion (for the second time!), he has travelled without interruption from one festival to another all over the world.

The International Kulturbörse Freiburg (IKF) is a trade fair for stage productions, music and events with live artist performances and an extensive exhibitor area. It was first held in 1989 in the Bürgerhaus in Seepark, and since 2001 the IKF has been at home in the halls of Messe Freiburg. The basic idea of the IKF was and is both simple and convincing.
