Volunteering with the dieKunstBauStelle
We are Katharina and Vivian, and we both come from the Landsberg am Lech. We are 19 years old and graduated from high school here in the city last year. Since we wanted to do something creative and cultural nearby, we came across the association dieKunstBaustelle. There Wolfgang Hauck, the director of this organization took us in very warmly for a three-month internship. During this time we helped and worked on several projects.
Some of our tasks were writing or translating texts for the website, and we also helped prepare workshops. In addition, we also helped with the documentation for the future workshop Bahnpark by writing texts and formatting them afterward.

Even though many of the tasks were completely new to us, it was worth the effort because we learned a lot and became familiar with new things. For example, we learned how to use new computer programs such as InDesign and Photoshop, which will certainly be very helpful for us in the future.
Our thanks go to the whole association dieKunstBaustelle for the many experiences we were able to gain!
Landsberg: The European Union supports a socio-cultural cooperation project in which the association dieKunstBauStelle takes over the realization of the digital design.
The qualification and experience of the partners from international socio-cultural work convinced the EU Commission, which is providing 200,000 euros for this purpose.
For the current working session, eight artists, social workers, and heads of social organizations came to Landsberg for four days in February.
The other locations of the funded EU project “Art No Stop” are Spain, Italy, and the Netherlands. Working sessions will be held there to pool the experience of sociocultural projects in a handbook, training courses, and an online platform.
