Ruhrtriennale is the international arts festival in Metropole Ruhr, which takes place every year in August and September and attracts countless international artists to the Ruhr cities. The Ruhrtriennale locations are the industrial monuments of the region, which are transformed into spectacular event venues for musical, fine arts, theatrical, dance and other performances. The festival focuses on contemporary artists who are seeking the dialogue between different disciplines. It is headed by a new person every three years – that's where the name Triennale is derived from.
