Ben Wealer is a research associate at the TU Berlin and a Heinrich-Böll-Foundation scholar. After graduating as an industrial engineer, he is currently doing his PhD in nuclear power economics, where he specializes on the technological and financial aspects of decommissioning of nuclear reactors and the final storage of radioactive waste.

Alejandro Arretureta-Schröder is a car enthusiast, and photographer based in Berlin. Since he was a child, he always had a passion for cars. Now he found a way to share this love with a project called Carphiles. During Conversas he will share his passion and vision for classic cars and how they became part of his life and the project Carphiles.


Conversas Berlin is a series of weekly informal meetings made so that we can get to know and discuss projects and interests; everyone is welcome and entrance is free.

During the event three Conversadores (those who talk at Conversas) bring something to share with the gathered group, for thirty minutes each. As the title suggests itself, Conversas (Conversations in Portuguese) offer an equal set up from which all can benefit.

We have drinks for 1-2€
Publication 4€
And we have a donation-jar, collecting for the next publication.

The second series of ten Conversas Berlin starts on the March 15 and runs every Wednesday until May 17. This series is happening at Naunynstrasse 53, and are organized by Sabrina Basten and Sarie Nijboer.

Conversas is a project by Constança Saraiva and Mafalda Fernandes initiated in Lisbon, in 2012. Nowadays, it's a project of many people and cities.
