Phase 1

The Altenburg hub activates villages to dream, build and connect in the rural Altenburger Land! The hub offers a dreamy vision of the region: How would it be by the sea? Who do we meet in its harbour villages? Who comes and goes? The Altenburg hub builds on the workshop-festival “Altenburg by the sea”. In the first phase, the team travelled with a wooden boat to four villages and co-created audio-plays imagining the village as harbours, connected to the wide world. Through dialogue, we gathered ideas and desires for projects to be implemented in the village. We wanted to think its future in little sustainable, colourful steps. Together with local village-chroniclers we dug out histories of migration and travelling. We get inspired by the little ponds and streams in the surrounding and the sea-postcards from other VAHA hubs across Europe. In the following step, these dreams get turned into realistic projects in the villages. They connect to activities of other VAHA hubs. Even though many people have left our region since the 90s, young adults are moving back and the sea brings new residents from all over the Mediterranean. Sourcing from archive material and co-creative playfulness, we investigate the persistent question of our region: How do we want to live in creative, lively and intercultural villages in Altenburger Land?

Phase 2

Cabinets of Local Wonders – inter:cultural heritage in Altenburg and Antalya

in collaboration with Antalya Hub

Antalya VOYN and Altenburg hubs work on two poetic themes: “the sea” and “the home”. By reflecting different perspectives on the same subjects, the two hubs aim to be able to see various narratives on significant urban and rural matters in both cities. The collaboration will implement activities in a similar format based on different local content. Objects and stories will be collected during the whole year in order to form a cabinet of local curiosities depicting tangible/intangible heritage from these completely different regions. Then there will be several side events in parallel such as workshops, field visits on routes, feasts, community performances, gatherings etc. Additionally, both hubs will also shed light on different urban matters via talks, podcasts, open air cinema nights and alike.
