About me Tina Heine

Private | Hamburg has been my home since 1994, where I opened the HADLEY’S Bar in 1996 in the Grindelviertel at the age of 23. From the beginning, I wanted to create a space where you could spend a good time with good people. Until today I am a passionate hostess – whether for a small circle of guests in my bar or for 20,000 festival visitors. The fact that I became a mother at the age of 24 seems to be a challenge from the outside, but in fact my two daughters – now grown up – are always a source of strength and inspiration for me.

Vision | My conceptual work thrives on my enthusiasm for art and culture and my interest in new, unusual formats in the field of tension between improvisation and confidence. I bring like-minded and dissident people together and awaken the desire to develop something new to transform existing things. By thinking through and running through processes I would like to create spaces for special encounters and give our society meaningful impulses for constructive coexistence.

Lectureship |Since years I am a lecturer in Festival Management and Audience Development at the Institute for Culture and Media Management at the Hochschule für Musik und Theater in Hamburg and at the Universität Mozarteum Salzburg. Here I am in constant contact with a generation that continues to give me new impulses for my way of working. I like to share my experiences and expertise in my seminars, lectures and discussions.
