The Casablanca e.V. film club has been showing small, special films in Greifswald and the surrounding area since 1992. The programme includes independent film productions from all over the world, if possible in the original and both feature films and documentaries. So far, the film club still shows 35mm films with original film projectors of the "TK 35" Tonkinokoffer system.

The somewhat different choir in Greifswald - world music, pop, jazz, contemporary and even theatre music...
We are a mixed a capella choir and work together every year on a colourful three/four-part programme of world music, pop, jazz and contemporary music, with a lot of fun in singing together. Choral voice training and stage presence training are not neglected either, as there is a final concert for our programme every summer.
We spend one or two choir weekends together to get to know each other and to rehearse intensively. For those who can't get enough, there is the opportunity to do even more in small open ensemble groupings.
Our workshop is a place where you can experience either printing t-shirts, making sketchbooks, paper, posters… or just talking, creating and laughing with the accompanying concert in the background.
Monday to Thursday from 3 pm and 6 pm
[druckkammer] is all about "designing". Our idea is to come everyday with new ideas, support people express through (printing) art and teach everything we know about printmaking or papermaking. We want “our” place to be “yours” as well. Our way of working is based on organizing small handcrafts events, mobile projects, supporting local markets or fairs and most importantly - printing. Possibilities are endless, if you have an idea but you’re not sure how to take it further, please come and see us on a Tuesday evening.The workshop is open from Monday to Thursday between 3 pm and 6 pm.
We formed in 2015 to counter the image of refugees as a problem with the image of collective solidarity and responsibility.

The Kabutze is run on a voluntary basis by young people who show you the sewing machines and help you with your sewing projects. In addition, we focus on exchange among the users. You can use the workshop and all materials for a donation (recommended donation 3-6 euros/hour). Twice a month we offer sewing workshops with a focus on tailoring or upcycling. You can also learn to sew in our sewing courses. In film evenings, public lectures and actions we deal with the social and ecological consequences of the fashion and textile industry. You can find the current programme on our website.
We run the traditional sailing ship "Lovis" together and in a self-organised way - a floating free space that you can make your own with seminars, class trips, campaigns, action trips or leisure trips.
Phone: +49 (0) 3834 77 68 46
Can you learn ecological, socio-political and social responsibility at a seminar? No! But one can encourage it. The seminars at Lovis pursue this goal. They give children, young people and adults a possible answer to the question of why it is worth getting involved. In addition to seminars, a variety of other trips also take place on the Lovis: Campaigns and action trips, leisure trips or nature and culture trips. You have an idea? We have a ship! Together we will plan your trip and help you to realise it.
We sail Lovis together - it takes many hands to sail such a big ship! All those who sail with us are therefore part of the crew that moves the ship. And not only that: everyone also contributes to the necessary care work, cooks and cleans and looks after each other.
Every now and then we are asked "Who owns the Lovis?" A club. So we could actually also say: us. We, that's about 30 people between 20 and 60, make decisions together. We also argue, but without losing our appreciation for each other. And: we not only share decisions, but also responsibility. For the safety of the ship, the content and the profitability of the project.
Would you like to get to know us and sail with us? Then write to us or browse our website for trips and construction weeks to join in.
We organise events on topics such as the climate crisis and health, the DRG system and mental health, and we also campaign for the teaching and performance of abortions.

The Partnership for Democracy Greifswald is one of more than 300 partnerships that have been formed in the spirit of the federal program "Live Democracy!" The federal program "Live Democracy! Promote Democracy. Shape Diversity. Prevent Extremism" promotes civil commitment and democratic coexistence through the "Partnerships for Democracy". Greifswald applied and started the partnership in 2019.
Democracy-promoting projects are intended to strengthen the understanding of democracy, democratic education and social cohesion. In particular, children, adolescents and young adults are supported in exercising their rights of participation and co-determination. Furthermore, the funded projects deal with forms of group-based hostility and multiple discrimination in order to support the recognition and appreciation of diversity and to deal constructively with the associated contradictions and conflicts. The goal is to establish a long-term, local partnership between the partners, which as a community of solidarity sets a visible sign against racism and for human rights.
For concrete individual measures, the Partnership for Democracy Greifswald has 43,500 € available for an action and initiative fund and 10,000 € for a youth fund.
The individual measures to be implemented from the action and initiative fund are decided by a monitoring committee, which is made up of representatives from local actors from the municipal administration, politics and civil society actors.
In order to strengthen the participation of young people, a youth forum will also be set up to decide on applications for money from the youth fund.
The project is coordinated by the lead office and the coordination and specialist office.
We are a queer education and anti-discrimination project from Greifswald.

What we do
We create spaces for empowerment, give workshops for different target groups and organize public events. With our offers we want to stimulate, try out and practice diversity-inclusive and anti-discriminatory action.
A central part of anti-discrimination work for us is empowerment. We organize practical and artistic empowerment workshops by and for (also multi-discriminated) queer people. The workshops enable networking and the development of action strategies and resources in dealing with discrimination.
We assume that all people bear responsibility for counteracting discrimination and other forms of violence. We therefore offer educational programs on queer diversity and anti-discriminatory action for various target groups - from school project days to further training for professionals.
In order to normalize queer diversity in society, it is important to be a visible / audible / readable and tangible part of it. Together with cooperation partners, we organize our own events and participate in existing local event series.
There is a podcast about our work, which is broadcasted by local radio stations and is available on our website with transcription.
Who we are
Qube is run by a volunteer team, supported by four part-time staff members since March 2020. Experiential perspectives as, for example, trans*, queer and/or disabled people shape our work. We are happy to have the support of allied people.
We are located in the STRAZE in Greifswald. There we have our offices and bring queer perspectives into the operation of this self-managed project. Since January 2021, our supporting association is the Jugend kann bewegen e.V. (Youth can move). We share similar goals with the association, such as the concern to create offers by and for (multi-)discriminated people.
Our work is currently financed by the funding of our model project "BAEM! Queere Bildungs-, Antidiskriminierungs- und Empowermentarbeit in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern lokal verankern" (BEAM! Queer education, anti-discrimination and empowerment work in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania locally anchored") in the federal program "Demokratie leben!". We receive co-financing from the "GLS Treuhand - Dachstiftung für individuelles Schenken".
We are open to ideas and criticism and would be happy to hear from people who, after this project presentation, feel like working with us or getting involved in our work!
We are made up of several chaotic, playful theater groups that can be joined by other chaotic, playful people.
No regular plenary, office or opening hours!

The core of our association are the different play-groups. Interested people have the opportunity to get involved as a player or in other areas. It is not a requirement to be a student, nor do you need to have previous knowledge or experience.

We work across borders with a network between our many different placement sites and their volunteers.
We would like to see better regional networking in Western Pomerania and also across Polish-German and other international borders. We live and work in a region from which many people leave and to which few move. We want to make a small contribution to changing that.
We are interested in human rights, culture, environmental education, global learning, peace, environmental protection and emancipation and want to bring together those who live and do so in Western Pomerania and West Pomerania. We want to strengthen civil society in our region while taking a global perspective.

The community-supported agriculture farm WildeMöhre is located in the small village of Tremt between Greifswald and Stralsund about one kilometer away from the Strelasund. There we live and work: Bene and Charlotte with our three children and some sheep and chickens. It is very idyllic and beautiful for us. And now we grow delicious vegetables for the people of our region, for you.
The gardeners of the WildenMöhre are Benedikt Gerigk, graduate landscape ecologist, and Charlotte Zeigner, pedagogue and passionate gardener. Our desire is to produce regional vegetables for you, to work transparently and fair, to minimize transport routes and to question existing economic practices through concrete action. We are happy to create new living spaces together with you and to make a sustainable contribution to the nutrition of all of us. In the long run, we want to enrich the Solawi with a farm store and café to reach even more people in the region and to enliven the cultural life beyond the pure work.
The Solawi starts with about 2 hectares of land directly adjacent to the farm. The vegetables will grow in the open field as well as in foil tunnels. The patches will be used according to the principles of market gardening, which means that mulch and compost will be used, so that plowing and intensive tillage of the patches is not necessary. In coordination with the shareholders, there will be a colorful, seasonal variety of vegetables from well-known and unusual varieties.
