News on Our Society and Around the Art of Paper Folding

Dear fellow folders,

Due to the corona pandemic and the uncertainty that comes with it, we have decided to postpone our 32nd Origami Convention until next year.

We are very pleased to announce that we came to an agreement with the Bildungszentrum Erkner to resolve the situation. Thus, the 32nd Origami Deutschland Convention will take place in Erkner
from 11th to 13th June 2021.

Best regards and stay safe!

The members of the board

As is tradition, the group of folders around Dirk Eisner is organising the OD stand at the
CREATIVA in Dortmund.
The focus will be on the model of the crane as a symbol of peace, health and a long life.
Creative helpers are being sought for a variety of tasks like decoration and visitor support.
If you want to help out in August, please contact Dirk Eisner (Dirk Eisner).
