From 10th to 17th August 2019 the International Sand Sculpture Festival will take place  in Rorschach, Switzerland and the sculptures will remain on display until 8th August. International artists from all over the world will be addressing the question: “Who will we be our heroes in the world of tomorrow?”

Sculpting masterpieces out of 300 tonnes of alluvial sand, the 20 sand artists will be creating their impression of heros of tomorrow.  The sand artists from six countries will be working in teams of two to create the sculptures.

The artists prefer to call themselves “Carvers” as they create their works by carving from a mixture of sand and water using shovels and carving implements.
