Essen-Katernberg is a lively locality with sustainable neighbourhood networks as well as countless spaces for social encounters. Now everything is different: the places that otherwise determine our everyday life are closed; the events and group meetings that we visit or organize do not take place.
The WerkStadt would like to change this: In cooperation with many local partners, a digital space for creative communal encounters is under fresh construction and everyone in Katernberg is warmly invited to fill this new space with life.
We meet on Wednesdays at 19.00 h to discuss current issues and developments. These meetings are driven by the stories we want to share with each other. What are we doing without our regular social meeting places? What fears or worries are we dealing with? Where do we see chances in this crisis? What do we miss that we were fond of?
A project initiated by PACT Zollverein and ISSAB in cooperation with the Social Space Conference in Essen City District VI Zollverein.
