Summer Camp 2019 – Echt kommunikativ?

Application deadline: 1 March 2019





Applications are still open until the beginning of March for the summer camp 2019 at the Schader-Forum (held in German) in Darmstadt. This year’s focus will be on interpersonal communication that takes place in public spaces, taking into account what they are used for. The aim of the four-day programme is to develop a dialogue project.


Public spaces are used by different groups in a variety of ways – as places to relax, room for art projects or meeting places. The use of these spaces is the result of a variety of civic initiatives. At the same time economic interests in public space foster exclusive experiences, and the internet as a virtual space also brings new challenges with it. At the summer camp, which runs from 15 to 18 August 2019, developments involving analogue and digital opportunities to meet in public spaces will be explored in more detail. Around twenty people working in groups will develop ideas for projects – outcomes may be seminar series, specialist congresses, and interactive formats. Questions that may be examined are “How can unrestricted access, diverse social encounters, democratic expressions of opinion, etc be guaranteed?” or “How can the communicative, community-building function be secured and further developed?”.

The camp will be managed bySilvia Haas from the coordination point for resident participation within the municipality of Leipzig, Jan Liesegang, an architect at Raumlabor Berlin, Hanna-Lena Neuser, director of studies at the Evangelische Akademie in Frankfurt/Main, and Anna-Lisa Müller from the Institute of Geography at the University of Bremen.

Students nearing the end of their degree, young academics at doctoral level and young professionals with a maximum of three years’ experience in their careers may apply for the summer camp until 1 March 2019. The project is supported by the ZEIT-Stiftung Ebelin and Gerd Bucerius, the Deutscher Werkbund Hessen, the Akademie der Architekten- und Stadtplanerkammer Hessen as well as the Schader-Stiftung.
