Gotham City Radio Project

Cultural education through creative participation

We are launching a new cultural programme featuring special activities designed to arouse curiosity about the cultures of the world. The under-18 generation is expressly invited to creatively participate in the Open House, but adults will also have the opportunity to get to the bottom of cultural questions. Thanks to new partnerships, HKW is also reaching out to new target groups in Berlin. The New York programme marks the beginning. Each of us carries in our mind a picture of the Big Apple – but how does this change when we open ourselves to images, music, people and ideas from this great metropolis? And what can in turn be learned about Berlin?

Homemade radio: Stepping into the role of radio pros, young people went on air to report on the opening weekend of the New York festival. They wrote their own pieces and selected the accompanying music themselves. The young editorial staff was assisted by the DJanes and radio producers Stefanie Alisch and Kiwi Menrath.
