Design, Participation and activities around the Überseestadt
As part of “Meet Your Neighbours AG” at HfK Bremen
In cooperation with Überseekirche, GEWOBA Bremen and many others
MEET YOUR NEIGHBOURS was a platform for intercultural exchange, that evolved from common activities of people from the University of Arts Bremen and refugees from the neighbouring accomodations in the Überseestadt. Since 2015 we have organized various projects and activities, reaching from art and creative offers, language and homework support to design and digital workshops and since 2018 I was supervising the AG as associate lecturer.
In the last years we were intensively involved in the design process of the newly created “Überseewiese” in direct vicinity of the HfK. The students were involved in several acitivites, both for the new rooms of a new neighbourhood meeting point, and later on for the temporary use a meadow: From the visual appearance of Überseewiese, the design of a magazine, Interior design and manifacturing of furniture, to wood and other workshops with residents, to creative activities with children and young people.
