With the project Frei.Raum.Direkt. we would like to test artistic practices as tools for sustainable urban development in the green open space of a nearby brownfield site in July and August and offer a platform for actors and activities. Frei.Raum.Direkt. is direct artistic action and architectural intervention in Dresden’s urban space. The project aims at the urban potentials of today for the city of tomorrow. 

Frei.Raum.Direkt. creates an innovative format for public discourse and asks for strategies and approaches for a future-proof, sustainable, creative urban and district development that incorporate a young, ecological and public welfare-oriented perspective. After all, the urban development decisions, opportunities for participation and existing open spaces of today determine the quality of urban coexistence of the next generation(s) and define not insignificantly the significance of Dresden as a location in the context of urban change processes. 

This week, the platform Warp Door has already been built by the Stuttgart artist collective umschichten – and it is now waiting to be used and played on. Together with other actors we offer summer camps for young people, a parkour workshop or construction workshops. We will also spend the summer on the wasteland with our cultural education format OUR SPACE. In parallel, we are organizing Frei.Raum.Direkt.*Young Satellites*, a series of workshops that directly address the needs of young actors in the urban space.
An up-to-date overview of all existing offers will be available from the middle / end of next week on our specially created website and on a bulletin board on site. 


The program is constantly being expanded – details and further information here and (from 19.07. also) at:
