Experimental Space @ Weizenbaum Institute

What should spaces be like in which experiments with digital technologies are made, experienced and further developed? How can we provide access to and knowledge of digital technologies, and above all create ways to shape them, develop them further and experiment with them?

@ Weizenbaum Institute

In digital spaces and formats of debate, learning and teaching and democratic participation, the digital transformation is negotiated and asked which digital futures we want to create and be part of. Some initiatives such as the CityLAB Berlin, bUm_Raum for committed civil society, the Verschwörhaus and KiezDigital work together with citizens and communities at the local level and in a way that is oriented towards the common good. In the workshop discussion, we want to ask which formats and strategies have proven their worth, speak openly about difficulties, successes and insights and create a space for collective learning. You are cordially invited to take part in the conversation!
