Berlin, Germany

In the summer of 1979 over 100 people peacefully took over the desolate grounds of former film company UFA, creating a comprehensive work and living project. Today the centre is a “green cultural oasis” in the middle of Berlin – a space for creation and culture, innovative ideas and sustainable development and a productive meeting place for the citizens of Berlin and artists from around the world. The 18,000 square meter space is divided into various areas, and two podiums are open year-round for artistic productions such as world music concerts, cabaret, conferences, Variété, dance theatre, comedy, children’s circus and more. As an overhead organisation, UfaFabrik employs between 120 to 200 people (depending on the season) and hosts approximately 200.000 visitors per year.

Live music, community projects, theatre performances, dilm screenings, programmes for supporting emerging artists, media, festivals, circus, discussions/lectures, artists in residency, educational programmes, dance performances, sustainable – and city development events.
