New uses for a former girls’ school: An independent cultural centre with global outlook
The centre is a project by Kultur in Mitteldeutschland (KIM, Culture in Central Germany), which is run by the entrepreneur, composer and musician Burkhard Schlothauer. Schlothauer envisages an operating model in which the profits from catering and rental fund the non-profit art spaces and cultural activities. The Häselburg demonstrates the potential of civic initiative, participation and cosmopolitan tolerance in a city one does not immediately associate with these qualities. The cultural synergies created here provides new impulses for social discourse in this once abandoned place.
The Häselburg is part of the IBA Arrival Stadtland project family, which is a pilot project of the National Urban Development Policy of the Federal Government, supported by the Federal Ministry of the Interior, Building and Community.
