Initiated by PACT as an independent EXPERIMENTAL working and meeting place in Essen-Katernberg, the WerkStadt is an open space where residents and community stakeholders can come together with national and international artists to explore, reflect and create local, regional, national transnational urban realities and VISIONS. All who come and go from the WerkStadt contribute to shaping and sharpening its profile as a lively community sounding board for social realities. Alongside a regular programme of scheduled activities, new projects continue to grow out of meetings of interests between local people of diverse backgrounds and artists and specialists in the fields of TECHNOLOGY AND SCIENCE. The WerkStadt’s profile remains flexible and is constantly questioned, tested and tuned.
