How do we keep our spark alive working in independent cultural centres? The penguin project develops ideas, tools and methods to help cultural workers answer that question for themselves.
What we do
⋄ providing tools for individual reflection (the book)
⋄ creating spaces for experiencing the penguin content and exchange about how we work in independent culture (workshops and discussion rounds at TEH meetings)
⋄ field trips and specific interventions (going to centres to work with cultural workers)
The penguin project started in June 2019 at the TEH meeting in Dresden. It is led by Die Bäckerei - Kulturbackstube and the Trans Europe Halles (TEH) coordination office. Die Bäckerei provides the research expertise and working power; TEH provides the administrative expertise and the budget via Factories of Imagination part 3 (until Sept 2021).
