Flea markets, table-tennis rounds, dancing among the plants, knitting, gardening without a garden of your own ... the long, colourful list of socio-cultural activities in the ANNENViERTEL district since 2014 could go on and on. Following on from positive experiences with neighbourhood work during the reconstruction of Annenstraße, the ANNENViERTEL district project was set up with the support of the City of Graz. The committed stakeholders are above all interested in promoting urban coexistence in diversity, communication in the neighbourhood and highlighting the many different facets of the district. The way to achieve this is through the participation, involvement and self-empowerment of local residents and all those who want to contribute to community life. Because there has never been enough funding to pay for a district office, the ANNENViERTEL mobile brings it directly out into public space. During the exhibition, the mobile is parked in the Kunsthaus.
