OPEN CALL: The Dampfzentrale is looking for YOU for an exchange

Do you go to Dampfzentrale Bern regularly? Were you at one of our festivals last year or did you visit us a few years ago?

We want to know your opinion, your interest and your attitude towards our house. Maybe the events at Dampfzentrale are already part of your regular evening program, maybe you have so far given the house on the Aare a wide berth – either way, we want to talk to you!

We are looking for you to be part of a group of people who answer questions about the house, the festivals, and the customer-friendliness of our offerings.
How do you find out about our programs? And what have you always wanted to give us as feedback? What do you already know about Dampfzentrale Bern as a cultural venue?

What does it mean to you?
You will visit with a group of 6-12 people 4-5 single events during our festivals Tanz in Bern (17.10.-04.11.) and Full of Lava (16.-19.11.).
You choose what you would like to see or be present at (stage productions, context program, concerts).

After the festival visits, the group will get together to talk about their experiences in an exchange meeting.
This will take place in the middle/end of November (an exact date will be fixed with all participants) at the Dampfzentrale Bern in a closed setting. The discussion will be professionally moderated and recorded. The protocol will be made anonymous at the end

Effort & Compensation
In addition to attending the events, the time required amounts to a maximum of 2 hours per evening. These consist of a half hour briefing and 1.5 hours of exchange discussion.

For your participation you will receive tickets for Tanz in Bern and Full of Lava and an expense allowance.

Are you interested? Please contact us with a short mail with your name and contact details at

With this Open Call we want to invite all people who are interested and want to exchange ideas with us about Dampfzentrale Bern and its future. It doesn’t matter how often you come to Dampfzentrale Bern – whether you regularly attend events, were last there three years ago, or have only read about our program so far. We are interested in diverse perspectives and views on Dampfzentrale Bern and its program in the field of music, dance and club culture.
