Volunteering in the Cranach Foundation
The initiative for the conservation and recovery of the Cranach yards was made from the beginning to a broad base of participation of citizens in Wittenberg. Since there was little personal wealth, the support was heavily influenced at the beginning by the free acceptance of orders to allow a cultural work also in the unrenovated places. Especially at festivals many volunteers were involved in the stands or in the background.
Today, after the renovation is almost complete, the image of tasks for volunteers has changed. The permanent exhibition in the Cranach-house market 4 is operated since it opened on 6 June 1998 by a team of volunteer women in Cranach shops. The court festivals, there are still a large base of dedicated Wittenbergers or guests who support us with your time.
