The ORi – this is the people who visit the space, organize it, and shape it in aesthetic form and content. It is a workshop for ideas, cultural meeting point, space for artistic debate, living room bar and stage. It is a changeable space, whose conditions, contents and boundaries are negotiated always anew.
The ORi conceives itself as a social space, open for everyone to visit, to interact, to realize their very own ideas. The artistic-cultural program evolves equally out of the collective of coworkers as well as through impulses from the outside – it is a space, who gives space to the ideas of other people.
Artists of all ages find a platform in it, for developing their very own creative ideas and visions, to realize and present them. Guests don’t have to stay in the passive role of a consumer, but are invited to appropriate the space, to shape it and use it actively. Also, external groups and initiatives that lack an infrastructure can temporarily use the space. Though we aim at integration into the so-called ‚Kiez‘, so as to especially neighbors‘ perception the ORi is an open space.
