COVID-19 has disrupted the way we carry out our activities to an unprecedented level. States of emergency and lockdown impact directly the activity of community spaces that exist to empower local communities.
On the 28th of November 2020 we held a discussion about how community spaces are dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic. Together with our colleague Giorgi Tsinaridze the discussion focused on Neighborhood – Multifunctional Center from Georgia.
The project “Community spaces and their role during the COVID-19 crisis and beyond” consists of a series of online meetings aimed at bringing together such initiatives. The online meetings provided the space for sharing insights about the COVID-19 experience and for exploring together options for addressing challenges, envisioning potential contributions to make during the pandemic and modes of operation in a post-pandemic context affected by a significant economic crisis.
The project is financed by the International Alumni Center Berlin.
