AIC – Art Initiatives Cologne experienced an exciting first year of inspiring activities – especially the publication of its Index 2016, depicting participating art initiatives in Cologne, the joint weekend AIC ON (Oktober 21 to 23, 2016) including exhibitions, lectures, performances, concerts and other activites, as well as the joint presentation at COFA Contemporary from November 17 to 20, 2016, at the fair grounds of Koelnmesse.
Thanks to our funding partners, the cultural administration of the City of Cologne and Sparkasse KölnBonn, as well as all of our collaborators, participants and members of the initiative for their exceptional commitment and support. We're looking forward to further activities in 2017.
