This building was build in 1906 as a factory for making pencils. For many years there was a mosque on the first floor and a Turkish grocery store on the ground floor. The cinema 35-Kino 35 moved in here after a renovation.The volunteers show alternative movies and work closely with AWO.
AWO already started an information centre for the Turkish guest workers in 1975and helped them to found their own association. Till today we are still the contact person for initiatives that need support to start their own offers.
We stand up for the sponsorship and assistance of urban quarters with a high number of migrants.Our employees take care of people from different countries in our meeting centres in the area.
Many volunteers support us in our work. It is a good sign of trust that more than a third of these have a migrational background.
