Cultural New Project Of Berlin
Berlin’s Senate Department for Culture and Europe, under the leadership of Senator Klaus Lederer, has launched a pilot project to reopen cultural and business events. The project, called “Testing,” involves cooperation with the Berliner Ensemble, the Konzerthaus Berlin and the Berlin Club Commission, among others.
Testing is to examine the logistical feasibility of events in conjunction with SARS-CoV-2 antigen testing. The findings will eventually be evaluated in early April and made available to interested institutions so that cultural events can resume as soon as possible.
BERLIN LAUNCHES PILOT PROJECT TO OPEN UP CULTURAL AND BUSINESS EVENTS
Klaus Lederer says of the project: “Berlin’s cultural institutions have behaved very responsibly over the past year. In view of the opening scenarios that are now possible, cultural institutions also continue to assume social responsibility. I am already proud of the fact that we have succeeded in forming an alliance of the city’s most diverse cultural institutions, which allows us to test a blueprint for the various houses, small and large, as well as a club, on how cultural events can function safely. Such a pilot is unique in Germany and hopefully a contribution with a view to carefree attendance at cultural events. As soon as possible.”
A total of nine events, taking place from March 19 to April 4, will be covered by the pilot project. These will primarily include concerts and theater performances.
