YOUNG TENANTS | Berlin / Potsdam

In the “Young tenants” project youngsters and young adults from Berlin are given unused locations in the urban space to implement a cultural programme and put their idea of cultural praxis into practice.

The tenant rooms are accomplished in six different districts and are time-limited. Professional art organizations provide mentors for the young tenants, offering their skills and advice as and when required. In this context the PowerLab adapts the action research methodology and calls it "Pärflektionstreffen". This so-called “perflection” is an encounter of the tenants as the main actors of the project, together with professionals.
