décembre 16, 2009 Laisser un commentaire
Since the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989, Berlin developed into a young, international and creative capitals in the heart of Europe. This process presents a fascinating and exciting challenge. Berlin has opened up to young people to be part of that process. The city offers space for ideas, experiments and projects.
culturia is a place of creativity, of ideas and projects. We give a home to young and creative Non- Berliners. Together with them new ideas and projects are born and realized. The international participants, who all have a very special point of view on Berlin shape a vivid place of culture.
It supports young, creative « non-Berliners for 3 to 6 months, helping them to realise projects without paying any rent but only additional expenses (such as gas, electricity, etc). Participants are involved in a networking programme, helping them to enter Berlin’s cultural and social scenes. Partner galleries promote exhibitions and events, giving young artists a chance to perform and to show their work.
culturia builds up national and international networks for creative potential which is based in Berlin and manifests Berlin as a center for young-professionals and their careers – with a longtermed benefit for the
participants and Berlin.
The ateliers, studios and working-rooms of culturia as well as its gallery are located in the Josetti-Courts in Berlin-Mitte. Here the participants work, come together and support each other. The flats are provided by the HOWOGE Wohnungsbaugesellschaft in Lichtenberg.
