About Loslassen Verein

Festival of Sensations is officially run by the non-profit art and culture association Loslassen (“Letting Go”.) Our team aims to bring together a range of marginalized groups (LGBTQI+ community, BIPoC, disabled people, people with migration and/or refugee background). We are convinced that queer art does not have enough space (yet), but due to its emancipatory character it makes the world a better place. 

Conceived by the organizing team of several events (The Parallel Universe, The Intimate Revolution, Lighthouse Festival), the event connects sustainability, art and the queer community. Now they want to combine their knowledge and commitment and implement this unique concept. 

Since 2017, we have been creating “The Parallel Universe” events in Hainburg and Berlin – to letting go of taboo and sometimes shameful social norms and conventions in a safeR setting.  www.loslassen.org
