Spektrum community program
Spektrum is an open space promoting participatory processes to co-define and co-design a social and physical playground for curiosity and critical understanding. Our community program has two main aims:
- bringing together people from various backgrounds in an atmosphere of creative and collaborative exchange and experimentation
- opening up knowledge around art, science and technology to a wider audience

Through our communities, we connect different realities in the city to each other to explore a certain topic from different angles, with a focus on providing an artistic output. Since June 2015, different communities around topics such as olfactory art, live cinema, sonic coding, gaming, motion technology and digital fabrication have been set up at Spektrum, meeting up regularly to share ideas, exchange knowledge and create new projects together. In addition, our community program also hosts existing groups, such as the Berlin Science Hacking community and STATE Experience Science festival.
We have defined four principles guiding our communities below. You can also find us, and the upcoming community meetings, through Meetup.
