How is knowledge created in our city society? – and how and where can we share it? Which spaces contribute to the production of knowledge? What role can collaborations like the Spinelli FreiRaumLab play in this?
The curator Sally Below and the urban theorist Christopher Dell, together with Jens Weisener from the Conversion Project Group of the City of Mannheim, take a walk where the mature Käfertal district and the new Spinelli neighborhood meet. Here, together with the local institutions and actors, they have developed a new concept for the area this summer under the motto “Holiday in Käfertal”.
Piazza Spinelli – an uncoded place for encounters and the sharing of knowledge.
The Piazza Spinelli is part of a long-term process within the Spinelli FreiRaumLab. This network works
existing spaces and green spaces between Käfertal and Spinelli, as well as new ones that will be created in the coming years, in a neighborly and flexible manner and to explore new ways of cooperation.
The Spinelli FreiraumLab is made up of: the Catholic parish of Maria Magdalena with the church of St. Hildegard, the prostentant community of Käfertal and Im rott with the Philippus church, the Turnverein 1880 Käfertal e.V., the Caritas association Mannheim with the Joseph Bauer House and the Franz Völker House, the NeighborWood, Oikos and WohnWerk residential groups, and the building group Anundo Wohnen & Service, which is also building on Spinelli, accompanied by the Conversion Project Group of the City of Mannheim.
