Tresor Berlin is giving six young people the chance to learn how to manage a nightclub.
Run out of Kraftwerk Berlin by Tresor's owner Dimitri Hegemann, Tresor’s former booker Diana Alagić, and sociologist Martin Fuller, the 12-week mentorship course in spring 2024 will provide paid, theoretical and practical experience of club management.
The Academy of Subcultural Understanding is inviting six young people who can speak German and English to apply to the scheme by 20th November.
Fuller, who works for The Academy of Subcultural Understanding, said in a statement (via Resident Advisor): “We started the Academy to promote club and subcultures in Germany and abroad by helping young people develop their skills and knowledge to successfully run their own venue.
“We want to see more clubs and venues, not only in the big cultural metropoles, but also in smaller cities where people often – too often – don't have access to this important part of culture. Subcultural spaces like clubs are enriching for both people and cities: they offer a space for communities to form, and a place for collective ecstatic experiences.”
He added: “They're good for cities because young people are less likely to move away when they have community and a space they love, which has long-term economic and social benefits.”
