The youngest branch of our company, which dates from spring 2013, involves conceptual and consulting work in the field of youth culture and individual sports.

Although our company is still young, each of our three associates have more than ten years of experience in the sociocultural field and in craftsmanship.

Many of the investments made by government bodies to support self-initiated youth culture and modern individual sports do not always do so as effectively as they could, and they often fail to achieve their purposes in the long run. This is not because of a lack of good intentions or enthusiasm on the part of the administrative bodies or city councils involved, but because these institutions often lack adequate access to the various, continuously evolving fields of youth culture. In short, there is a communication barrier.

We strive to overcome this barrier. To do so, we approach every new project individually and adapt our methods and ways of working to the particular circumstances and requirements involved. Unfortunately, however, this makes it rather hard to describe our work in detail. But we can describe our general approach.

 

Phase 1: analysis

  • initial talk
  • contacting target group
  • goal setting
  • working out the needs
  • analyzing the resources
  • presenting a report

Phase 2: conceptual work

  • interdisciplinary concept
  • involving the target group
  • presenting the concept
  • outlining possible ways for the creation of the project

phase 3: realization

  • creating the project
  • internships and workshops
  • coaching the participants
  • finishing up
  • final report
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Our goal throughout the entirety of a given project is to acquire a solid base of participants who identify with the project and take interest in its ongoing development. Having achieved this, the project can be released into its “free phase,” during which we develop ideas regarding the project and implement them

There are many reasons to involve young people and the specific target groups throughout the entire process of a project – to help them acquire new skills and knowledge (about collaborating with others as much as about working with tools), and to introduce them to a whole variety of professional fields, for example. The best reason, however, is to share the joy and beauty of collective creation.
