The “KulturMarktHalle” (KMH) was founded in 2016 as a voluntary initiative by people from various professional and cultural backgrounds. Since then, it has been a meeting point for people working in arts and culture to develop local initiatives. Since 2018, it is located in a vacant building, formerly a department store. The area is part of the Prenzlauer Berg district, a vibrant and multicultural neighborhood. The vision of this project is bringing people from different social and cultural backgrounds together. Various exhibitions, seminars, concerts, cultural and educational events are scheduled. A workshop area (to work with materials like wood) will be completed soon, in order to offer more space for the creativity of its visitors. For more information, please visit: https://www.kulturmarkthalle-berlin.de/
This workcamp is part of INVOLVE and it is a joint effort of 3 voluntary service organisations in Italy (Legambiente), France (Solidarités Jeunesses) and Germany (ICJA) to promote and foster the inclusion of migrants in 7 local communities. The project aims to contribute to more sustainable, cohesive and inclusive societies. Therefore, the main project activities are in the areas of environmental protection and social and cultural heritage. The objective is to demonstrate that doing voluntary activities together provides opportunities for social exchange, civic engagement and for learning and growing as a community and society.
Involve Workcamps will also be held in five other project locations, three in Italy and two in France, in cooperation with the respective municipalities. Each work camp will bring together a total of 20 participants with very different cultural, social and economic backgrounds. In Berlin the international group will be composed of 5 old Berliners (long-term residents in Berlin), 5 new Berliners (newcomers to Berlin) and 10 participants from the project locations in France and Italy and from other countries worldwide.
The European cooperation project INVOLVE runs from January 2019 to December 2021 and is co-funded by the Asylum and Migration Fund (AMIF). For further information please see: http://www.involve.blog/
Volunteers are invited to support the further development of this centre. "Sustainable building, growth and management" are the main three work areas of the workcamp. Participants will rotate from one area to the other according to the schedule, which will be organized during the first days of the workcamp.
In order to fight the combined threats of gentrification and densification that Berlin is currently facing, participants will build a mobile “KulturWerkHalle” under the technical guidance of "tiny collective". It will serve as a workspace, production and exhibition space for art, craft and cultural works. It will be constructed as a trailer, so it can be used everywhere where needed in the neighbourhood. Please also visit www.tinycollective.org for more information.
The outdoor area of the KulturMarktHalle will also redesigned during the workcamp by following a permaculture design concept and ecological management of urban green spaces. Two areas will be our focus: the protection of the existing biodiversity of flora and fauna and the promotion of urban cultivated areas, mobile raised beds and edible front gardens. At the beginning of the workcamp, participants will visit the community garden and the “Peace of Land” study site and receive an introduction to the principles of this design practice (see: https://www.peaceof.land/). Volunteers will put theory into practice in the neighbourhood by preparing beds for vegetables and flowers and doing garden work.
Currently at the KMH, public dining (food bar) is open to the neighbourhood residents. Participants will also support this activity, cooking for the group in small teams. Therefore, they will practice the menu design using salvaged, regional and seasonal food, following the sustainable principles of KulturMarktHalle under the motto “Good Health Together”.
Volunteers will stay in the KulturMarktHalle building. Two rooms with some camp beds will be provided and a shower room in a close sports centre will also be available. Participants will take care of the catering themselves with the support of the KMH team.

Some of the offered activities will be a visit to the Jewish cemetery, a visit to the island of Weissensee (Tinyhouse-Village), swimming in the natural beach Orankesee…
