nomadicArt is an art container and cultural platform, offering diverse creative and cultural activities that empower newly arrived citizens to enter the 'public arena' despite legal obstacles restricting their mobility and inclusion in social life. The workshops and events facilitated by nomadicArt are co-created by migrants and experts. They provide a safe space for exchange and action. Besides that, nomadicArt is connecting and including various stakeholders from society: migrants, refugees, activists, researchers, volunteers and other actors in the close neighborhood.
The activities of nomadicArt are addressing the inhabitants of the adjacent NUK (emergency shelter), the neighborhood of ZK/U Berlin in Moabit and ZUsammentKUNFT at Potsdamer Platz. It deliberately stays on a small scale, and is continuously evaluated and reconfigured according to the needs of the participants. Next to helping and connecting the local structures, nomadicArt aspires to explore the potentials of artistic work as a transformative tool. The documentation and discourse coming from these activities will be exchanged with other similar groups working in other shelters in the context of the joint working platform ZUsammenKUNFT.
