In the Kiez there is something going on: many things are changing, new people are coming, others are leaving, and our neighbourhood is no longer the same as one, two, five or ten years ago. This does not always have to be negative, quite the opposite!
With the help of different games, game developers explore and experience the public space and the pluricultural traces in the neighborhood in a variety of ways: they learn stories and tell something about themselves. Through the narratives, diverse places of encounter arise, which will certainly affect the everyday life of the inhabitants – one gets to know the neighbors better, one knows their stories, one is called by name.
In the workshop, Soldino was developed – a play for Soldiner Kiez, in which different people, places and stories were brought together. Afterwards the game with different groups from Soldiner Kiez was tested and played.
