access via wheelchair is possible

A place to gather, rest, exchange and communicate during the power to the people conference and action days.

About us: In 2018 we started with the utopian idea of anchoring art, culture, and social togetherness in the neighborhood for the long term. Our name takes up the demand “Right to the City”, and since then we have been operating in the Althangrund area. Through the continuous work of the last few years, we have become a constant in the city, district and in the neighborhood. We are an open collective organized as a non-profit association with the aim of enabling cultural, social, neighborhood, and solidarity activities in the district and promoting self-organization. The cultural center 4lthangrund is the place where such a solidarity perspective on the city is tried out and already lived.

What will happen on site: we are a place where you can inform yourself, about the protest, related needs as well in general as there is a self organized infoshop on site. We are a place to rest during the often stressful times of activism. We are a space to exchange, have a drink, get some food and to meet others. Furthermore, we are also a kid’s friendly space, there is an extra play area with toys on site.
As a self organized space it’s important that you support on side trough, respecting the structure and space. This goes from taking care of trash to washing dishes or by also getting yourself familiar with the concept of the space. We are looking forward to having you with us; power to all of us who aim for a good life for all and to overcome these factors that oppress us.

If you are on site – there are several things where you can support us. If you have some time to support, you can ask at the bar, what can be done (like helping with dishes, trash, cleaning shift, …)

Actions:
