A COMMUNITY // A CULTURAL PLATFORM
A safe and secure space for young people to unfold, find peace of mind and be creative. You decide whether to come by for a cup of coffee, to create, or to contribute to what the house should incorporate.
You understand UKH by experiencing it. We believe that the transition from ideas to action must be as short as possible. That is why all young people are encouraged to step inside and use the house.
DANCE ROOM // DARKROOM // SEWING AND GRAPHIC WORKSHOPS // REHEARSAL ROOM // MUSIC AND ART STUDIOS // THEATER // FOOD COMMUNITIES // CREATIVE WRITING // EVENTS // MEETING ROOMS
YOU CAN FIND THE WHOLE WORLD IN UKH
We include those who include others. With us you grow without noticing. Here you can get to know yourself, grow by practising your skills and be a part of a community that transcends culture/gender/art/experience.
UKH IS A DO-OCRACY
Those who engage in the house are the ones who influence it and have a say in the decisions. The established staff members work to support the young people and their projects. The staff and the young people collaborate to form the house.
UKH has (finally) got a permanent address in Aarhus’ former County Hospital. Now the house can absolutely grow bigger and stronger.
§ UKH is those young people who make use of the Youth Culture House
§ No violence, racism, discrimination, drunkness or drugs – It results in suspension!
§ Alcohol is not allowed from Monday – Thursday at 7 P.M.
§ ALWAYS leave the house as you found it
§ The COVID-19 recommendations must be respected
UKH is an informal talent environment, built on free will, networking and collaboration. The house facilitates both personal development and immersion. However, it also helps you develop tools by collaborating with others, serving as a useful experience for your career. As soon as you, the practising artist, are ready to go, UKH is ready for your exhibition, concert, or event.
With a three-year grant from Slots- og Kulturstyrelsen, the Cultural Governance has launched a local collaboration about artistic talent development in the municipality. UKH is a partner in the project and is planning a series of events and festivities within this area. If you would like further information about Talent Aarhus, contact Lone.
In 2017, an evaluation of UKH was conducted. Urban Goods prepared an evaluation that we are quite proud of. The evaluation was designed so that it partly tells the story of UKH, and partly so that you can dive into the report with your own perspective whether you are a young person, a professional or a politician. The evaluation is called UKH – The House of Opportunities, and that is exactly how we want young people to see and experience our house.
You can find the entire evaluation in the link below.
