Edgeryder Festival Locations in Berlin

Another idea would be to tie it with events we’re organizing with the NGO I co-founded in Berlin, Experimentelle Zukunfstlabor - we have a long-term partnership with German Federal Association for Sustainability and they offered us spaces for free in their office, which is pretty well located between Kreuzberg and Mitte.


I could also try to contact the Supermarkt at Mehringplatz, they focus on decentralized governship and similar things - I could see this as adjacent.

But the German Federal Association for Sustainability sounds great too!


They’re actually neighbours! and my friend is collaborating with Supermarkt, i’d love to finally meet them

oh you can talk to @ela I think

What is the capacity we’d be aiming for?

I’m a fan of supermarkt too, and I think it has space for up to 100 ppl easily, with AV for events anyway.

I’ll be free to join the planning call next week.

@mrchrisadams, I will add another sheet to fill in location needs and estimated event sizes

Hello dear Edgeryders and great Tech for Good event developers in Berlin.

Ideas have developed.

@mrchrisadams and @BlackForestBoi both want to have their main workshop on the 22nd. We were wondering if you would like to/could have it in the same location if one of the options is big enough for two groups of up to 20 people if I understand correctly?

That would allow us to work together for set up and food and the participants could meet up during the lunch break for some cross-pollination?

@pbihr, maybe your talk could fit in there in the evening? Or the following day, since Olivers team will stay around for multiple days. (which means they also look for sleepable places if possible)

Please reinvigorate this thread and discuss and plan if you would like to join and were, and if not, still where else those events could happen independently :).

If you’re not already in touch with Ela, I’m happy to make introductions @mrchrisadams @BlackForestBoi

Sorry I’ve been missing calls, so I’m not 100% up to speed; Chris, reckon some smart city / responsible tech governance related talk would add value to your current plans?

I’ve just talked with Ela: The Supermarkt could host on 20., 21. or 22. , I’ve taken the liberty of nailing the 22nd for now.

As to the current plans: The more topics, the better I think!

(also, Ela actually does not have an account here, I’m for now a go-between).


ping @danohu

Hello :),

we heard that you might have some good contacts and ideas for where and how to do workshop events in Berlin.


@MariaEuler did you see ^^ @JollyOrc post above re venue?

Yes, Sounds good

To all of the organisers in Berlin: How would you like next week’s community call focusing on coordinating locally overlapping events?


hi @pbihr - yes, that would definitely help provide some useful context.

The stuff I had in mind for running was a half day, afternoon workshop.

I’m wondering whether, assuming we are able to use the same venue, it might be worth finding a selection of speakers to provide some context, in the morning.

You can see the overview here

Just now stumbling over this thread. Sorry for the late enter!

So the Hackathon we planned will be during the whole weekend from 22-24. Topically it seems as if there are quite some overlaps, and it would be great to be able to bring together the whole community.

I figured it would be nice if a potential location we shared has the ability to still split the groups for their specific purposes on the 22nd. In our case we want to make quick intros of the participants/projects and the schedule of the weekend itself and then later go into socialising. Saturday morning is probably the Warm Data Lab about sustainability and then hacking/making until Sunday evening.

I guess we are going to be around 40 people.

great! I hope to see you guys in the call in half an hour :slight_smile:

@MariaEuler told me yesterday you are going to have a location only for the 22nd.

I wonder if we can share that event together somehow. We plan to do the hackathon on the 23rd and 24th and do an intro evening on the 22nd with all the projects, and then a get together.

Can we maybe jump on a quick call this weekend or next week to see if we have the possibility to do the evening together? Would be cool to get the edgeryder community in one place there :slight_smile:

Since multible of you are together there in Berlin and think about starting on the same day, we wondered if maybe we should add a shared budget point of (maybe 300 euro?) and try to find someone who would be interested in organizing a socializing party for the participants afterwards.

Sorry to come in a little late.
I just filled in the typeform form, proposing a text + discussion event about philosophical backgrounds and design quidelines for inclusive social communication tools.
I think it could serve as a transition between the Warm Data Lab and the hacking proper. For good interaction it would be best with about 10 participants, but it could be done more than once.
