Board of Trustees

This committee acts entirely in the spirit of the Latin verb curare: to care for and nurture. Under the patronage of H.R.H. Michael Herzog von Württemberg, it actively supports the sponsoring association of the Ludwigsburg Festival. On the one hand, the circle of curators includes ambassadors, such as representatives from the fields of culture and politics, who open doors and facilitate new contacts with idealistic and financial supporters. On the other hand, they include art patrons who promote and make projects possible with their annual financial contributions. The members of the Board of Trustees support the Ludwigsburg Festival with generous donations, thus making a significant contribution to the realization of new ideas and visions. Together they are promoters, central impulse givers and prominent multipliers for the goals of a festival of the arts, democracy and sustainability.
