Liebe Freunde und Freundinnen der Ulme35,
wir versuchen es noch mal mit dem Wetter!
2x ist in diesem Sommer der Mitmachzirkus Cabuwazi zu Gast, vom 31.7.-4.8. hoffen die 6-12jährigen auf gutes Wetter im Garten, vom 21.-25.8. sind dann die Großen von 13-21 Jahren an der Reihe.

Dear friends of Ulme35,

Bad news from BIM, the owner of the house - the new water pipeline is delayed, it will be a while until we have drinking water and a kitchen – so we will continue to improvise.
This does not prevent us from announcing many great events for the coming two weeks:
(Here the printversion of our program ...) ...continue reading "Filmdoku mit vertrauten Gesichtern, “Subbotnik “- Arbeitstag in der Ulme und mehr bis Ende Juli"

Es war ein schönes Fest - Danke allen, die sich an den Planungen und der Durchführung so tatkräftig beteiligt haben! Statt langer Beschreibungen folgen weiter unten Bilder und die Rede, die Dr. Zhivka Deleva, die Heimleiterin des Flüchtlingsheims in der Eschenallee hielt. Bei all dem, was wir in der Ulme35 und in allen Flüchtlingsunterkünften dieser Stadt tun - immer geht es um individuelle Menschen - Danke Zhivka, dass Du das so eindrücklich in Worte gefasst hast.

Räumt jemand seinen Keller auf oder muß jemand eine Wohnung räumen?

Ab Ende Juli haben wir einen Hausmeister und der braucht Werkzeug! Bevor wir alles kaufen, wollen wir erst einmal fragen, manchmal hat man ja Glück. Also; habt Ihr etwas von dem Folgenden vielleicht übrig?

...continue reading "Werkzeug gesucht – oder eine kleine Bettelliste (Stand 28.7.2017)"

Aufgeschoben ist nicht aufgehoben - zum einen ist das Sprichwort eine schöne Sprachübung für unsere Übersetzer :-), zum zweiten ist es wahr:

Das Zuckerfest mit buntem Kinderprogramm von Hüpfburg über Kartoffellauf bis Zirkus findet am kommenden Freitag, dem 7.7.17 von 16.00 bis 21.00 Uhr statt. Es gibt orientalische Süssigkeiten und reichlich Platz, die mitgebrachte Picknickdecke auszubreiten - freuen Sie sich auf ein buntes gemeinsames Fest!

Postponed is not abandoned – the Sugar Festival with its lively programme for children with a jumping castle, games and circus will now take place on Friday 7th July from 4pm – 9pm.  There will be oriental sweets and pastries and plenty of space to spread out a picnic blanket – so do come and celebrate together!

On Saturday 8th July there will be a very special story-telling evening. The organization Saiedad Souria held workshops for women in Syria, neighbouring countries and Germany to write short stories. These will be read in Arabic, a written translation will be provided in German and the oud music needs no translation.

And because parties are such fun, on Sunday 9th July there will be a party only for women from 3-6 pm. Come and enjoy that with us!

On Wednesday 12th July we have a special programme at 3.30pm. The Komische Oper in Berlin is sending its ‘Operndolmus’ to Westend and invite you to a small-scale opera programme with two singers and three musicians. The programme is called “At home in two countries” and presents arias and duets from 500 years of opera. The theme is the search for happiness in a far-away country and what it means to leave your culture and everything familiar behind. Well-known songs from the opera – and operetta repertoire in German, Italian and French are combined with folksongs form Turkey, Croatia and Holland.

On Friday 14th July the Film Club is showing a film about Afghanistan: “The Kite Runner” based on the novel by Afghan-American author Khaled Hosseini.  The film will be shown in German with subtitles in Farsi.  After the film we would like to talk with Afghans about how realistic this film is. It was shot in China and California but depicts life in Afghanistan before the Soviet invasion in 1979.

On Saturday 15th July at 7pm the Syrian/German author Wahid Nader will be our guest. Accompanied by Issa Fayad on the oud he will read extracts from his works.

By the way, from July onwards we are also open on Thursdays from 3-9 pm! On these afternoons we will be concentrating on job integration – if you would like to help others write a vita or a job application, please get in touch with us!

Here you will find the complete programme in three languages to print and pass on…
 We look forward to seeing you,
The Ulme35 Team

Dear friends,

due to the intense rainfall, the sugar festival is postponed on July, the 7th.

So please come next week and bring your picnic blankets, food and drink, pack guitar or oud, and get to know the new and old neighborhood! Expect oriental sweets, music and a colorful children's program.

We are looking forward to a sunny (cross your fingers!) and wonderful day!

Arabic poetry, board games on the veranda, philosophical discussions, water leaking through the roof and Arabic rap – we’ve already experienced so much in the first half of June.

Hopefully the next two weeks in Ulme35 will be just as lively (but please without any further leaks in the roof).

Our salon and wonderful veranda are open every Wednesday, Friday and Saturday from 3pm onwards, so do come by for a coffee!

A highlight this month will be the Sugar Festival Eid al-Fitr to mark the end of Ramadan. We hope that neighbours and refugees will come and celebrate this festival together in our park on Friday 30th June. The children are already eagerly preparing decorations and we would very much appreciate helping hands to distribute invitations in advance as well as support on the day. Who can bring a cake or a picnic blanket? If you can help in any of these ways please send a mail to:
