October 27th, 2018 - Arts & Beats
The 3rd Arts & Beats by Pilsczek & Manzel & Buddenhagen took place in Hamburg-Winterhude in the premises of the Buddenhagen branch on Saturday, 27 October 2018. After a great success of the 1st and 2nd Arts & Beats with more than 70 guests, a wonderful food/cooking show as well as a lot of good art and music we were very happy that Arts & Beats has experienced a third evening with more than 80 guests. Rafael R. Pilsczek invented and founded Arts and Beats so that he could exhibit his paintings in a good place in Hamburg.
