LAC Herbst 2023

With 2023 being the tenth edition of the Fall Festival, the theme is "10 years together”. This edition aims to celebrate this decade with a wide range of creative activities, such as music, literature, theatre, poetry, art, film and others, and to give outstanding recognition to the creativity and contribution of migrant communities in Hamburg and Germany. This edition is also an occasion to appreciate and celebrate the many relationships and joint projects that have been formed over the past ten years within the framework of the festival.

The "Latin American and Caribbean Fall" is a festival conceived by the Senate of the Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg following the interest of the group of Latin American and Caribbean Consuls accredited in Hamburg. It takes place annually and aims to improve the visibility and knowledge of Latin America and the Caribbean in Hamburg through a programme of activities that allows the interested public to participate in the discussion of social, economic and political issues and at the same time brings the public closer to the cultural richness of this region. It is distinguished by an agenda with topics of interest for Latin America and the Caribbean and its relations with the European Union - especially with Germany. It also aims to create cooperative links with all entities that share its vision and objectives.

Since the EU-LAC Foundation took over the coordination of the project at the beginning of 2017, the Latin American and Caribbean Fall has been developed on the basis of the following guidelines:

  1. To contribute to the respect of multiculturalism in the city of Hamburg by promoting the diversity and cultural richness of Latin American and Caribbean countries and their contribution to the city.

  2. To be the annual platform for cultural activities and events, as well as spaces for the discussion of LAC economic, political, social and academic issues in Europe organised by a diversity of public and private institutions.

  3. To give visibility and relevance to Latin American and Caribbean communities in Hamburg and to become a space of free expression to promote dialogue and integration in the society that welcomes them.

  4. Consolidate the positioning and visibility of ALC in the Hamburg cultural scene.

  5. Promote the image of the participating institutions in Hamburg and Germany.


The tenth edition of the Latin American and Caribbean Fall Festival was officially opened on 20 September at the Rathaus in Hamburg.
