Once a month, the ›Solid Skills‹ workshop series transforms PACT Zollverein's WerkStadt into an experimental urban lab for thought, participation and co-creation. Local artists and experts bring along their skills and perspectives from a wide range of fields to the WerkStadt to share, apply and develop them together with people from the local community and all those interested. Covering topics from sustainability to urban development and culinary arts, ›Solid Skills‹ offers something for everyone!

All ›Solid Skills‹ workshops take place at the WerkStadt, Viktoriastr. 5, 45327 Essen, Germany.
