What is it about?

DKolektiv has been developing a democratic and inclusive society for 17 years. This work culminated in 2021 when we opened a community center with the aim of responding to social, democratic, cultural, generational, sectoral, demographic and economic challenges. The Social Atelier wants to empower the vulnerable and marginalized, so that they can become proactive members of the community. Thus, it is at the same time a space, but also all the activities that are carried out in it. Last year its importance was recognized by over 2,000 citizens who participated in over 180 activities.
