Innovation Camp – Landsichten

There is no specific rural area, whether in terms of resources or social, structural and political challenges. Germany’s places beyond the urban centers are versatile. The rural areas and the specific role of the cultural and creative industries as a source of inspiration for solving acute challenges are the focus of the Innovation Camp “Landsichten” at Kühlhaus/Görlitz. In close cooperation with the design and research studio The Constitute, topics such as structural change, skills shortages and requirements for new education systems were be treated based on concrete case studies from 12-14.09.2019. In doing so, interdisciplinary teams develop solutions for the stock in rural working and living spaces.

Real case studies from all over Germany show how cultural and creative industries respond to the complex requirements of rural areas: they create facts, write new narratives, open spaces for experimentation and enable cooperation beyond familiar limits.
