Edgeryder Festival Locations in Berlin

Dear community members,

The responses to the Edgeryder Festival Call so far have shown that Berlin will be one of the hotspots for the “real life” meetings, events and workshops during the Edgeryders festival. (others are Brussels, Warsaw and Stockholm for example).

Especially the events planned n berlin will be very hands-on workshops and hackathons as it fits the community there very well.

This means that we need to have locations for hose events.

@mrchrisadams and @Jaaacob you indicated beeing able to help to find locations, could you maybe share links to the places you have in mind and say something about their availability or how long before we would need to book?

@ all the other community members from of familiar with berlin, please also add if you know good spaces in the city.

And also: Please sign up for the Festival and tell us where and how you would like to participate here:

@ those who would like to contribute a talk in berlin like @pbihr, @BlackForestBoi, @JollyOrc and @mrchrisadams, please post a quick estimate of your needs (space for how many people, for how long, food?, tables?, beamer?, Electricity?..)


I think @phoebe also spends considerable time in Berlin? And @adz also lives in Berlin and might perhaps be interested? See this thread for context.

@danohu @peteratomic @natalia_skoczylas @eirinimal @samim (for ideas about possible venue that could use support via us renting it) @ela (whom I think might be interested because of your various interests and work around e.g deep ecology - guys for context maybe have a look this announcement and this discussion this proposal for one of the workshops/sessions for context Ela, platform economy, livelihoods of professional content producers ) - Dunno if @iamkat @jessy_jetpacks spend any time in Berlin.

There’s a venue ran by my friends with a kitchen, in Neukolln, that I would always love to support - we did Culture Culture there in May. It’s an art/biohacking space run by a collective. But it’s not very big



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.
