Art for everyone

Brunnenpassage is situated in Vienna s 16th district on a busy street market called Brunnenmarkt. Its goal is to encourage people from different nationalities, of all ages and with varying socio-cultural backgrounds to engage in community arts projects together. Cultural variety enriches every society by highlighting different perspectives and ways of life and questioning individual as well as social preconceptions. In order to foster mutual understanding and learning from each other we offer a wide range of activities for active participation as well as numerous performances and events.Our events are open to everyone who is interested. Participation in all events is basically free of charge. Feel free to drop by and take a look around without any obligation.
Our website and our flyers are in German because a basic knowledge of German may be helpful if you want to take part in our projects. But please don`t hesitate to drop by even if your German is not that good yet there are always many other participants and staff members around who are ready to help you. The people who come together at Brunnenpassage are usually very open-minded and interested in meeting people from other cultural backgrounds.The Brunnenpassage team speak the following languages: Turkish, Serb, Croatian, Bosnian, Spanish, Russian, English, Danish, French, Dari, Fulani and German.

Every month we send out an e-mail newsletter with our programme. If you would like to receive this newsletter please register on the following page:

You can also call us on +43 1 890 60 41 if you have any questions. Just drop by and take part!
Below you can find a brief summary of our programme. It primarily lists those events that take place on a regular basis and where participation does not require a good knowledge of German.


Brunnenchor (choir)
Our choir consists of people of all ages and nationalities and meets every Thursday. Participants sing, rehearse and develop a repertoire that will be performed at Brunnenpassage and other locations later.

Stimm Dich ein (open voice training)
People seeking participation in our choir may start by visiting the weekly workshop  Stimm Dich ein . This is an open voice-training group headed by varying professional artists.

Klangpassage (instrument building)The  Klangpassage  (Passage of sound) is an open workshop for musical improvisation, experimenting, composing and building instruments. Musical instruments and professional guidance are provided by Brunnenpassage.

Klangfabrik Mundraum (workshop)Klangfabrik Mundraum (Sound factory in your mouth) is a series of human beatboxing workshops where everyone can participate. Bass, percussion and other sounds are produced only by your mouth, without any instruments.

Every now and then there are concerts at the Brunnenpassage. The date can be found here:



Saturdance (open dance workshop)
At this two-hour workshop you can try out new dance styles every Saturday. Participants don t need to have any previous dance experience; no registration is necessary.

Dance Class Youth/Adults (dance company)
Two groups of dance fans come together on Wednesdays; over the months they develop a choreography that will be performed at the end of the semester. New participants can join the groups in autumn or in March. Regular participation is desirable.




Cinemarkt (cinema)
On the first Monday of the month Brunnenpassage turns into a cinema. Films are shown in their original version with German subtitles; admission is free. After the screening there is the opportunity to talk about the film, and sometimes the director and/or protagonists of the film are also present.



Piknik (let´s have breakfast together)
Brunnenpassage opens its doors for a public breakfast every first Sunday of the month. Everyone brings some food that s/he would otherwise have had for breakfast at home, and Brunnenpassage provides the beverages. Piknik is a good opportunity to find out more about Brunnenpassage and to get to know others who are interested in it.


The storytelling focus in our programme is certainly a bit of a challenge for those whose German isn t that good because the stories are mostly told in German. But maybe you can use the events to expand your German vocabulary. Our biggest storytelling project currently takes place at schools on a weekly basis and is also designed to help children improve their language skills. This is also the aim of some events that take place at Brunnenpassage itself:

Offene Erzählsession (open storytelling)
At the open storytelling sessions there is room for everything, from everyday stories to fairytales. Everyone is free to tell a story if s/he feels like it but those who have just come to listen are equally welcome.

Die Kunst des Erzählens (storytelling performance)
In our series  Die Kunst des Erzählens  (The art of storytelling) we bring renowned storytellers to Brunnenpassage who shape one evening with their tales and stories.
