The project is a collaboration between the district of Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf, the Foundation Aussergewöhnlich Berlinthe G.ART Gallery for Eastern European Art, and the Europa Center. The project is supported by the Integration Fund of the Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf district.
The course launches March 20th, 2023. Ukrainian artists and Berlin-based impact startups can apply for the course up until that date.
Berlintegrate: Learn sustainable networking and implement it right away!
Approx. 15 artists with Ukrainian roots will receive a four-week training for "sustainable networking" by 17ACADEMY (founded by Foundation AusserGewöhnlich Berlin).
They are accompanied by a group of "Berlin Mentors": select, Berlin impact startups that participate in the course as tandem partners.
During the program, participants create a theoretical foundation for building sustainable networks and partnerships.
A visible, practical result of the newly acquired theoretical knowledge will be the Berlintegrate Center, which will be created in the foyer of the Europa Center by the end of March. It is organized and curated by G.ART Gallery. The participants will be given a space here, which they will transform into a Ukrainian art exhibition together with G.ART artists.
The exhibition will open March 24, 2023, and will run in tandem with the course. This way, all of Berlin will benefit and experience integration in action.
The Europa Center will serve as a role model for the opportunities that temporarily-used spaces can offer during hard times.
Supported by Berlin's temporary space initiative "Transiträume," the project will allow for more creativity and a richer cultural experience at the legendary shopping mall.
This is where Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf demonstrates the cross-fertilizing potential of business, culture and politics working together.
