Summer FestivityOpen door for interreligious encounters
We invite you to our summer party on the "Tag der offenen Gesellschaft" (Day of Open Society). On this day we put tables in front of the door to celebrate with you - well, not quite in front of the door, since our pavilion on Petriplatz in Berlin had to give way to the prepatory construction work for the House of One. We therefore carry our table a few meters up the Friedrichsgracht towards the Museumsinsel, where we found shelter in the garden of our friendly neighbours from the Flussbad Berlin e.V.
On this day you can dance to music from Jewish, Christian or Muslim traditions - hopefully in bright weather - ask our education team about their interreligious work with children and young people, trace the 800-year history of Petriplatz with archaeologist Claudia Melisch or listen to short lectures on the construction project - and above all meet other people, talk, ask questions and get to know them.
This lived openness is a special concern of the House of One and the people who are involved in the interreligious encounter work of the foundation.
With this festival we would also like to thank all those who support our grassroots work in life, learning and teaching tolerance and humanity as well as our work for an understanding of democracy based on the idea of equality of all people. Without you, this religious peace project would not be possible - but it is so necessary at a time when too often the divisive, not the unifying, is emphasized.
We look forward to your coming!
For our planning we ask for registration under: firstname.lastname@example.org
The Flussbad Berlin e.V. would like to transform the Spreekanal between Fischerinsel and Bode-Museum into a place of relaxation. New riverside paths are to be created and, thanks to a plant filter, naturally purified water will flow into a future river bath. The non-profit association has been commissioned by the Federal Government and the State of Berlin to implement the "National Urban Development Projects" programme.
*River bath garden at the ESMT Berlin,
Friedrichsgracht/corner Sperlingsgasse, 10178 Berlin-Mitte
Directions U2 Spittelmarkt or bus 147, 248, 265, M48 to Fischerinsel.
