Kieztreffen #1: Montagssuppe // monday’s soup

Am 5.11. (erster Montag im Monat) findet unser erstes Kieztreffen statt, bei dem wir eine wunderbare Suppe aus allerlei mitgebrachtem Gemüse zaubern werden. Aus gegebenem Anlass (wer soll das alles bezahlen?) ist dieser Abend dazu gedacht, ein sinnvolles und nützliches Konzept für den Kiez und die Bewohner zusammenzustellen, mit dem wir uns dann bei dem...
Kiezprojekt #1: FOOD COOP

Kiezprojekt #1: FOOD COOP

Ich bin eben zufällig bei meiner Recherche über die food coop, die Ida Nowhere organisiert gestolpert. Da deren Gruppe voll ist dachte ich, wir könnten hier im Kiez eine neue Gruppe gründen. Gärtnerhof Staudenmüller arbeitet mit den Löwengärten zusammen, dort gibt es weitere Infos. Wer Interesse hat fängt am besten gleich hier den Austausch an. Ich selbst wäre ab Frühling...
Kiezaktion #1: Liebe kleben // putting up love

Kiezaktion #1: Liebe kleben // putting up love

After following his posters in the city in the past years I finally met the initiator of LiteKultur a couple of days ago. I thought the Kiez needed some love and I wanted to ask him whether, as a street artist, he might consider to put up some posters here. When we met he handed me over...

Sharing is Caring

Deutsch kommt // The diversity of people who live in the neighbourhood with their skills, tools and knowledge is what can make the community thrive.

Nachbarschaft, Beziehung, Kommunikation // Neighborhood, Relations, Communication

What other initiatives are out there already? What do you think of? What is missing? What could you offer? How could generations interact more with each other? Do...

Orte zum Leben und zum Arbeiten // Space to Live and Space to Work

Deutsch kommt // There are a lot of people looking for space while at the same time there are a lot of empty spaces. The times of temporary usage of spaces seem to be over due to speculations of real estate companies. Spaces can be rented/bought for high prices while long-term residents are being displaced....

Wer und was ist bereits da? // Who and what is already there?

The neighborhood is buzzing with new people, spaces and projects popping up all over the place.  We have a soft spot for community initiatives that contribute towards making our community a happier, healthier place for everyone. Also it would be nice to show some love to our community heroes 🙂 So would like to build...

Kiezworkshop #1: getting started

Kiezworkshop #1: getting started

When Susa told me about the uneasy relationship between the old residents and newcomers in the Schillerkiez neighbourhood of Berlin, I didn’t really understand how much tension was in the air. This city hosts many people I have come to love; over time it has become my second home, but I have always been hesitant...
