PROGRAM IN BAUMHAUS SPACE
Want to meet neighbors and other people who want to make the world a better place in Berlin? Our project space is a platform for meeting, events and workshops for a variety of people and organizations…
Check out our program below to see the schedule of events. And if you think something is missing, maybe you could create that event in Baumhaus yourself. Get inspired and involved in Baumhaus project space!
Gerichtstr. 23, front building, ground floor – the entire space is ground floor, we have a ramp to get in, and a barrier free bathroom. Please let us know if you have other special needs, we’ll try to provide support. Please note: The entire space is designated as an “Open Greeting Zone”, which means that it is a place where anyone can feel comfortable walking up to anyone else and introduce themselves. Our events are often bilingual in English & German. Please let us know if you don’t understand. Most of the time we can organize translation on the spot.
If not indicated otherwise: 5-12€ (pay-as-you-feel) for the space
Baumhaus Community Networking Night
Baumhaus weekly Community Networking Night is about bringing together people from all walks of life who share a common desire; to act on their impulse to do what they can to make the world a better place.
Its about enjoying meeting interesting people in an authentic and informal atmosphere, developing organic relationships, through sharing perspectives and collaboratively supporting each other.
What makes community nights in the Baumhaus really special is the great vibe of the space and people…

I.G.O. Thursday Meditative Vocal Jam Sessions @ Baumhaus
We meet every Thursday to listen, respond, observe and curiously play with the sounds our voices create together. Our objective is to tune into the common feeling we are developing in the present moment.
Most of what we do is with our eyes closed. This allows everyone to be very focused on only the sound space without any other distractions. We usually are more beginners than experienced singers, and that’s absolutely fine. It is a learning process in progress, each time balancing ourselves in volume and expression to merge into the group sound space, allowing everyone to hear and be heard, naturally developing our own musical styles.
All levels and voice types are welcome! Just make sure to be on time: Scott will explain a few basic and intuitively understandable concepts to make it super easy to dive in for everyone.
