About this project

Beneficial encounter #kitchentable
„Eating together is the backbone of human interaction,“ says the psychologist Marshall Duke. Especially in the actual situation in Germany, where the division of society is proceeding, where anonymity in the cities is increasing it is important to promote community to start the dialogue and to discover interaction in new ways.
And where should that work out better then at a common dinner table in the backyard? 

With our project „beneficial encounter“ we want to support and promote exactly that. 

In regular intervals we will take our kitchen table to the backyard of different tenements and start the dialogue with the neighbors. We want to find out more about the needs, wishes and talents oft the people living there and connect them with each others. The kitchen table is also there to encourage residents to become active in promoting open neighborhood, and to support and be part of an integrative community in their surrounding. Our plan is to accompany residents in their process of getting to know each other for a longer period of time, assist them to dismantle prejudices and support them in implementing their ideas.

And where there is no backyard? We just put up out kitchen table in front oft the house!

We want to reach as many people as possible, take part in conversations and get to now and connect new neigborhoods. To make this possible we need your help! 

Every small donnation helps us to visit another backyard...take the minute and support us.

If you also want to get active and it takes tooooo long before we reach your backyard- contact us. WE WILL SEND YOU A KITCHEN TABLE BOX with you table features instruction and so on. You can call us any time for support. We will connect you to other active neigbors and if possible pass by.
