The IBA Thüringen sees itself as a public platform and actively seeks dialogue with the people of Thuringia. To this end, a number of different formats have been developed. The ‘IBA Salons’ each address a key theme of the IBA Thüringen in collaboration with a single partner: they offer new professional insight and aim to extend horizons beyond the realm of Thuringia to include national and international input. ‘IBA Conferences’ take place approximately once per year as an opportunity to discuss specific aspects of the IBA Thüringen in depth. In addition, a variety of workshop meetings and public events will take place on site with the IBA Candidates.
