    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    You will stay in a beautiful, creative place in Drahnsdorf in the countryside around Berlin. So you will enjoy the country as well as the big city. We are establishing a place for creatives and research towards developing atmospheres that enhance creativity. Also we work in that field professionally as a professor for communication design and as architect, philosopher and dance therapist.

  • Help


    We are renovating our mansion house and establish our garden. So we need to paint walls, do wood work and also some construction work. At the same time we want to start with decoration as well: making curtains, making barrels for plants. So the help will be a mixture of renovation, construction, gardening and some creative stuff. In the late spring/summer we have a break with the renovation and host some events.

    We also installed a watering system in the last year and a permaculture concept and planting according to that has to follow. So good gardening and construction skills are very welcome.

    In October/November 2021 we generally also need people who are experienced in woodworking and electricity, or who can also sew.

    Right now we are besides the renovation also working on a concept to establish a circular system with energy-autonomy and regenerative agriculture for the village.
