Initiated by PACT in close collaboration with the ›Arbeitskreis Kunst und Soziales‹ (Art and Social Engagement Working Group), the WerkStadt is a new local hub for open and ongoing communal discourse, activities and knowledge transfer. Situated centrally in Essen-Katernberg on Viktoriastr. 5, it pools interests, questions, skills, resources, ideas and visions for neighbourhood and urban social life and offers an informal space for quiet breaks and direct conversation alike. This summer the nomadic Chilean collective MIL M2 spent three weeks at and around the WerkStadt cataloguing questions of genuine local and global concern and hosting events including Tropical Bingo and DIY workshops. Coming activities at the WerkStadt will be developed successively with all involved.
