The Power of Community
Berlin’s nightlife is like no other: With its diverse groups, collectives, and networks, it’s no surprise that more and more people hope to work together to create a new direction for nightlife. CO:QUO x Digi-Gxl presents “The Power of Community”, moderator Sandira Blas (Keychange/Factory Berlin) will lead a discussion on why community building.
Joining Sandira will be Adrian Blount (House of Living Colors), Anna Ásthildur (Sena Live/Iceland Airwaves) as well as Lucas Knoflach (Sound Diplomacy). The four represent a diverse set of views, perspectives, pains, and learnings; they’ve worked in and with communities formed around music, art, culture and social impact. We need the right people to support us and challenge us to build this environment. This discussion will push the conversation further to examine the power that can be found in communities like those in Berlin.
Join us at the NIGHT EMBASSY, our custom-built modular music and art space in the heart of Kreuzberg. The event is a safe space to cultivate communal knowledge and share experiences: Respect is a must, as is open-mindedness.
The event is free of charge, but capacity is limited. Admission is only guaranteed with a digital ticket, so be sure to download yours today to save your spot. The exhibition and bar is open from 18:00 – 23:00 every week day.
