Miről szól a projekt?

On the basis of a feasibility study for creating regional development areas, local centres for community-based activities were established first in Gmunden and Vöcklabruck and then in Walding, Kirchdorf and Vorchdorf. The centres are supported by teams of Otelo volunteers as needed and depending on the stage of the activity (idea / game / project); otherwise, they are self-organizing. From workshops for transmitting knowledge through stimulating “idea bars” to jams in open format, there is room for everyone (and everything). The municipalities take care of basic infrastructure in municipal buildings and provide an orientation 'manual' for groups and new locations. Currently, a cooperative society is being formed as a place of alternative employment for entrepreneurs.

A zsűri elismerése

Non-urban areas also need stimulating spaces permitting local residents to be creative and inventive. ‘Otelo’ offers precisely such impulses in a local and organizational framework easily accessible by everyone for the purpose of exploration, development, creation, showing and providing inspiration. It itself is an evolving experiment. Regional development from below means activating, enabling and combining the results on a regional level. There is just one requirement: everything (the idea, the game and the project) must be shared.
