Who are we?
The Buntwald association was founded only recently. In November 2019 we held the founding meeting of Buntwald, which we founded as a non-profit association for the promotion of art and culture. We are ten local people from Oberwolfach who enjoy music and want to bring its diversity to the region. It is also important to us to address social aspects and things like sustainability.
The basic idea was initially to bring more musical culture to the region. Here in the Wolftal, there is already a lot of culture offered, but we still think that more variety is possible and we want to make the Black Forest even more colourful. So the name Buntwald ("bunt" meaning "colorful" and "Wald" meaning "forest" in German) stands for the different colours of music as well as for the colourful society we live in.
With the festival we want to bring people a little closer together again. For us, it doesn't matter where someone comes from, what they look like or how old they are - what counts is where they want to go and what their goals/values are. Our goal is that not only the people who celebrate with us will have something from the festival, but that something of it will be passed on and will be passed on in the long run. Therefore we would like to support selected social institutions and organisations with donations.
What are we going to do?
We can imagine many events from different cultural areas, which we organize in Oberwolfach and its surroundings. The first big event we are planning is the Buntwald-Festival in July 2021. On July 23rd and 24th there will be a big party in the Mitteltal (which is a part of Oberwolfach) - with lots of music, relaxed atmosphere, street food from regional suppliers and all of that in the middle of the countryside.
