Location details and information on Covid and accessibility

The workshop will be held in English. The room in which the workshop takes place is relatively large and accessible by a ramp. The toilet can be reached over a small threshold. It is spacious, but has no grab bars. On the way to the venue you will encounter cobblestones and curbs. The entrance door has a width of 85cm, with the ramp overcoming a height difference of 20cm. All other doors are between 80 and 95cm wide.

Covid19 is still there and endangering the health of us and the people around us. Some people are more at risk and depend on Covid safety agreements to be able to participate. We want our workhops to be accessible for those people / you, too. Therefore we invite all our participants and workshop hosts to test before coming to our workshops. If you have symptoms, please do not come. Everyone who decides to wear a mask during the workshops is free to do so without any discussion. For the case that one or more person wishes for other participants to wear it as well, we ask you to wear a mask until the group has decided on a common agreement. We also know that for some people it is not accessible to wear masks, e.g. because they cannot breath or have sensatory overload. We will provide tests and masks in a limited number but ask you to contribute by bringing your own ones. If a participant has other requirements on covid safety and already communicates this to us beforehand, we will let you know in the infos on the workshop.

Participation Fee

The participation fee is based on self-assessment, that means you can decide for yourself how much you want to pay. For example, you can use your own hourly wage as a guideline. If you have little or no money, that’s no problem. You will receive all further information and the access
