 Neighbourhoods are everywhere – we are right in the middle of it. With district walks, conversations in the green, creative workshops, exhibitions and much more.

Neighbourhoods live not only from the local people, but also from the buildings and places. The residential buildings, streets, schools and much more shape the image of our neighbourhoods. But does it always have to stay that way? Is it possible to do things differently?

Do I live in the place that feels right to me? Where would I most like to be? What can I change about my environment? Do I feel comfortable in my neighbourhood? If so, what is special about it? If not, what does my dream neighbourhood look like?

These are questions that many people ask themselves! In our biography workshops you can therefore deal with these topics in a creative way and in conversation with other people from the neighbourhood.

Workshop series “My Neighbourhood – Between Wish and Reality”

Together we build very personal “city objects”. The material basis is old packaging (cardboard boxes, tetra-paks, cans, etc.), which will be redesigned in an upcycling way. The focus is on your stories and wishes, your living environment, the neighbourhood, the district!

And the best thing is: the finished houses, facades, squares, etc. don’t just remain for themselves. You can put these “buildings” together to form a common “city view”, which will be presented in an exhibition at the end of the year.

Be part of it and shape your and our city with your own hands. Build your dream house – the place where you would like to live!

Kunstverein Dresden and Hauptstraße

Dresden neighbourhoods, that also means discovering and walking through the city with open eyes. For example, on Hauptstraße in Neustadt: a promenade and neighbourhood around it that connect the city’s history and many areas of life. This is where people live, work and shop, experience art and culture. Tourists and Dresdeners appreciate the “boulevard” between Neustädter Markt and Albertplatz with all kinds of cafés and restaurants, small and large shops, clubs, organisations and several art galleries. Throughout the year, there is always a lot of hustle and bustle at markets and festivals. This weekend is no exception, when the Children’s Festival takes place on 1 July.

We are guests in one of these places in the middle of it all – the Kunstverein Dresden. We are looking forward to a colourful creative workshop for all little and big kids between 3 and 99 years, led by artist and workshop leader Nadine Wölk. The Kunstverein’s new exhibition is also open. On display are works by Viennese artist Micha Wille, whose painting has always been a clear commitment to humour, language and snot. So there is a lot to see, for children and for adults!
