How is a sense of unity—”we”—actually created?
What relationships and networks are behind this in a neighbourhood? The
project “Viertelpalast [Quarter Palace] & School of the We” takes place
at five locations in the Annenviertel area. At every location, artists
are conceiving a stage-like object. From the beginning of May 2021, the
locations will be festively opened one after the other.
For several months, programmes will be carried out in all five locations
with the involvement of local protagonists and institutions. There can
be play afternoons, reading groups, workshops, parties, theatre plays
etc. or simply coffee rounds. The population of Graz is expressly invited
to make use of the by then created spaces!
The premises of < rotor > in Volksgartenstraße will be used and offered
as project headquarters for meetings, exercises, workshops, as a reading
room, workspace and palace kitchen from march 2021 on. By then, individuals
and groups are cordially invited to take part in tours visiting the locations
in the district and the programmes of “Viertelpalast & School of the We”!
