France in the North: The arabesques cultural festival celebrates Franco-German culture in northern Germany with numerous events from September to December. German and French artists meet in over 50 events, most of them in Hamburg. The presentations range from music, film and debates to exhibitions, chanson, theater and literature.

Freedom and change in 2022

This year's festival will take place from Sept. 30 to Dec. 15, 2022. With the annual theme for 2022 "Métamorphose II: Freiheit - Liberté", the artists deal with the process of change: they ask where the freedom can come from to follow a new path that combines social upheaval with the protection of the environment, nature and human dignity, peace and security. A special highlight of this year's arabesques cultural festival is the concert by Ensemble arabesques with Ariel Zuckermann at the Elbphilharmonie on October 6, 2022.
