Would you like to EXPERIENCE . . . new places, new artists and new ideas? Then pack your bags and immerse yourself in the artistic and cultural side of a city on a unique Lisa Chandler Art Adventure

I am excited to share my curated creative adventures for art lovers in unique destinations around the world with you . . . hosted by myself and a guest guide/s with
in-depth local knowledge.

In June 2019 please join me and Leipzig born Anne Haswell on an exciting 8 day tour jam packed with the artistic and cultural highlights of this East German city. Leipzig is an exciting city that is becoming increasingly well known for its unique mix of art, culture and urban grunge. Leipzig, often touted as the ‘New Berlin’ and ‘Germany’s Creative Capital’ by the likes of The NY Times, The Guardian and Intrepid Travel, is famous for Johann Sebastian Bach, the New Leipzig School of Painters, the Spinnerei Art Hub, Book Publishing, the Gewandhaus Orchestra and the Wave Gothic Festival.

I live and work in Leipzig, Germany for 8 months each year and I have a studio at the Leipzig Baumwollspinnerei Art Hub. Apart from art and travel, I am passionate about walking, tiny houses, cooking, food and wine.

Anne was born and grew up in Leipzig and now lives in Nelson, New Zealand. She has been involved in the hospitality and wine industry since 1988, training in Germany and Switzerland, then working all over the world, including Germany, Switzerland, England, Scotland, Bhutan and New Zealand. Anne is passionate about art, travel, gardens, hiking, cooking, food and wine. She speaks fluent German and English.

We will stay in an inner city hotel, indulge in delicious regional cuisine and learn about Leipzig’s history and musical heritage from local specialists. And I am looking forward to introducing you to the artists, galleries and art spaces that makes Leipzig special. Each tour includes a ‘secret’ cultural event not listed on the itinerary!
