Offers apply to the location(s):

Sonneneck, Senfte 10

What are your hobbies and what do you want to do in your free time?

Together with you and on the basis of your ideas, we develop courses and clubs focussing on music, dance, media, graffiti, fashion and more. Why don’t you participate in the designing of contents and opening times?

We are currently offering the following courses.

Graffiti: Together, we use the language of images to express ourselves in a creative manner. With the spraying can, we develop individual street art on site – for instance, at our graffiti gallery at the sports field of Cottbusser Strasse. The 10-metre-long and 2.5-metre-high wall is a result of our work – with visitors from all over Berlin and the potential to grow further.

Music: If you would like to play the guitar, too, or if you are looking for likeminded who will perform new songs together with you, than you are just right at our music course. We make available acoustic or electric guitars to beginners for practising free of charge. You will be astonished how quickly you will be able to play your favourite songs.

Nature and the environment: We experience that the heedful stay and sensible activities in the green outdoors are fun and can be relaxing. In your own area in the garden, you can decide for yourselves what to plant and how to design the layout. The aim is to increase the bio-diversity of insects and birds. Together, we will get to know these inhabitants of the garden better. We build insect hotels and various types of incubators for different varieties of birds, bat nesting and feeding boxes. And we set up hibernation possibilities for hedgehogs, birds and insects and offer nesting help to birds in springtime. Using our weather station, we monitor the weather in Hellersdorf and document it continually. In an exchange with experts, we learn more about recycling, renewable energies, water management, environmentally friendly architectural planning, environmentally compatible cars and other means of transport. And who knows, maybe you will find your later vocational career in one of the professions dealing directly or indirectly with nature and the environment.

Media: How do I obtain information and how do I move around confidently on the Internet without disclosing to many of my personal details? These and many more problems of daily PC use are to be tackled together in our working group at SONNENECK. What you have learnt will be certified with an Internet navigating license. We compile PowerPoint presentations together, dabble in digital photography and image editing, design flyers, posters and more. There are no limits to your ideas for concrete projects that emerge from these aspects. Let’s tackle this together – with fun and creativity!

Dance: What would life be like without exercise and dance? In our DANCE-FIT-AG, young people learn to handle their everyday stress in a creative manner. Dancing is fun and results in inner harmony and develops self-confidence. It promotes motor skills and coordination and increases performance. Our course is open to everybody who wants to exercise. There is a mixture and there are experiments. Elements are picked and choreographed from various dance styles ranging from hip-hop to salsa and to jazz. The focus is on fun and active relaxation in leisure time.
