Creativeworld exhibitors support little artists from the Rhine-Main region

27 Apr 2023

This year, 87 exhibitors at Creativeworld donated high-quality painting utensils and handicraft accessories to the Frankfurt Children's Office. The donations in kind include everything a young artist's heart desires, from canvases and stationery to brushes, paints and pens, modelling clay, stamps and stickers. Today, Eva Olbrich, Show Director of Creativeworld, and her team handed over the donations. This year, around 4,500 children in more than 50 children's institutions and youth centres in the Rhine-Main region will benefit from the goods.

With this fundraising campaign, Messe Frankfurt is committed to the education and creative promotion of children in the region. In this way, the company creates a bridge between the international trade fair, which is reserved for a trade audience only, and the creative users. The international trade fair for hobby, craft and artists' supplies was held in Frankfurt am Main from 4 to 7 February 2023.

"ʻCreativity is intelligence that is funʼ, Albert Einstein said. But you don't have to be a genius to have fun in creating! As a trade fair for the creative sector, it is important for us to promote the joy of doing things - also for the next generation", explains Eva Olbrich, Show Director of Creativeworld. "It is wonderful to see how many exhibitors from all over the world have taken part this year!", Olbrich continues. Madeleine Michaelis, head of the Frankfurt Children's Office, joins in the praise and points out: "Creative learning is really essential, especially for children. It creates a sense of achievement and brings joy. And making that possible is so important, because it also creates participation. That is why we really appreciate Messe Frankfurt's commitment to children and young people.”

During the trade fair, the about 250 exhibitors from all over the world were called to give trade fair samples from their handicraft and creative ranges for the good cause. Creativeworld has been organising the appeal for donations in close cooperation with the Frankfurt Children's Office since 2010.
