The New Neighborhood group NEUE NACHBARSCHAFT in Berlin Moabit is a big non-profit community of over 400 members, with and without a refugee background. We are a place where people get together , where social contacts are formed, where the lives of old and new Berliners are enriched by cultural exchange and joint activities.
Every evening, more than 150 people from Afghanistan, Chechnya, Iraq etc. come together to get to know us, to learn German, to paint with us, to dance, to eat.

Free German classes

Cooking Wednesday

What are open 7 days a week and offer: regular concerts, recitals, lectures, cooking events, childcare, women’s gatherings, as well as Arabic and German classes, art classes for children and adults, for refugees and native Berliners. Currently, we host a cultural marathon with dozen events every week-end.

Today we need your help!
In May 2015, we were able to move into a larger facility to accommodate growing crowds. With your support we will be able to:
-renovate two rooms in the basement;
-as well as the sewer system,
-materials for the arts
-regularly renew our learning materials (textbooks, pens, writing blocks),
-our volunteers are unpaid, but we will hire professionals for parts of the renovation works.

Celebration for families with young children


We are creating a new type of community that will bring in new impulses to the integration process in Berlin. We are not working for the refugees; we work alongside them so that we may learn from each other.

Cultural Marathon

Your help will enable us to expand our working space, make our activities more efficient and our network even more sustainable and inviting.
You are a contributor to tackle the challenges that immigration and integration are posing. We will be happy to send you personalized updates and the newsletter about daily life of old and new Berliners and its fun and improvements.

Dear friends, thank you again for supporting us!

As you know in summer this year we opened the art space Neue Nachbarschaft/Studio 26. Our group of artists is growing, there are now workshops taking place three times a week. Anybody who comes to our studio, people of all ages and origins, can learn about different techniques and mediums, in order to then work independently.

On December 11th we will have our second Charity Exhibition: „Alles Neu #2“. The artists of Neue Nachbarschaft/Studio 26 as well as a number of renowned artists will be showing their works and offer them for sale. Most of the works are priced at 200€, of which 100€ will go directly to the artists, and the other half will go to the project Neue Nachbarschaft/Studio 26. This money will be used to cover the rent and the materials.

If you are in Berlin come to see our exhibition!
Selected works can be viewed here:

As always, our rooms are every day filled with people who are ready to help. It is always a fascinating experience. Even at 32 C degrees heat, our volunteers do not stay at home but come into the initiative. “Yes we can” takes place literally every day. Every day we are open, every evening an event takes place.
Arabic courses, Cooking Wednesday, legal counseling, concerts. New addition: piano lessons, and Studio 26, our alternative art school.
Not only the number of visitors, but also the circle of people who is involved in the programming part of the initiative is growing. Many who have come to us to learn German now actively plan and organise events. And it is a very important development.

We are very grateful to each and every one who supports us!
