Haus des Wandels, Office of Displaced Designers, Oyoun – SOUP3
Covid has been weaponised across numerous locations in order to increasingly restrict, contain and exclude marginalized voices. Young generations have been especially affected. SOUP3 puts youth and marginalised communities centre stage in designing creative solutions to counteract the issues affecting them most. Participants are invited into an interdisciplinary transnational ecosystem of exchange that amplifies their voices and power by providing seed funding, training and connections to develop and test creative, artistic and sociocultural solutions in 2022. SOUP3 is based on principles of inclusion, empowerment and solidarity. The partnership including Haus des Wandels, Office of Displaced Designers and Oyoun builds a dialogical bridge between in rural East Germany and Office of urban Athens, Greece.
