In honor of Henry Arnhold's 100th birthday on September 15, 2021, we would like to commemorate our generous supporter Henry Arnhold who lent his name to our Dresden Summer School. Henry Arnhold always followed our program with keen interest and maintained contact with all the institutions involved. He always showed his commitment and the importance he attributed to the Summer School during his visits to Dresden. The Henry Arnhold Dresden Summer School is proud to continue this network of science, art and culture in Dresden in his name.
Henry Arnhold Dresden Summer School
The Henry Arnhold Dresden Summer School is an interdisciplinary programme for young academics and museum professionals. It takes its name from the honorary fellow of the TU Dresden, Henry Arnhold, whose philanthropic spirit and close ties to Dresden, the city of his birth, have inspired diverse partnerships between the city’s cultural and academic institutions. As a joint project between the TU Dresden, Deutsches Hygiene-Museum, Militärhistorisches Museum der Bundeswehr, Sächsische Landesbibliothek – Staats- und Universitätsbibliothek, and Staatliche Kunstsammlungen Dresden, the Dresden Summer School draws from the resources of a broad network of major partners. The project aims to bring together high-level speakers and experts from the participating institutions to discuss topical issues relating to how museums and libraries perceive themselves, their mission, and the state of collections and exhibitions in the future. The discussions cover underlying theoretical concepts but also include concrete practical approach.
