F.A.Q. - frequently asked questions

Who works behind the scenes? 

The Ensible e.V. (registered association) works in the area of youth promotion since 2006. They are a recognized provider and the liaison office of voluntary youth aid in North-Rhine Westphalia.

The backyards art gallery is part of their initiative for youth culture. It was initiated and encouraged by the LEADER programme (an acronym in French – Liaison entre actions de développement de l'économie rurale – meaning Links between actions for the development of the rural economy), which is a European Union initiative to support rural development projects initiated at the local level in order to revitalise rural areas and create jobs. 


Why the “backyards art gallery”? 

A lot of young people are talented, and it is rarely appreciated by their social environment. We want you give the opportunity to present yourself and your talents to the public and therefore receive the recognition you deserve.


Which context does the gallery have? 

The chosen works will be exhibited in the city centres of Hallenberg, Medebach, Brilon, Winterberg, Marsberg and Olsberg. The photos then can be seen in the store windows of the participating shops as part of a traveling exhibition. Finally the six-week exhibition will come to an end with a finissage at the Astenturm in Winterberg. All participants and people interested in culture are welcome.

Is there a deadline to upload my photos? 

If you are successfully registered and logged in, it is possible to upload your photos until the 15th of January 2021. From then on, the jury is going to shortlist photos for the exhibition.


Will my artwork truly be exhibited? 

A jury consisting of creative artists and photographers will choose 50 works from the entries.
