A week at Vienna – UCE lab

1 Starting a journey at WUK 

On the morning of 14th September, we (15 international participants from Italy, Germany and Austria) gathered together at WUK, Vienna for a fun and inspiring lab on placemaking and social entrepreneurship. We met with the coordinators of the lab, Hannah from Wonderland platform and Robert. They walked us through the various project visits and tasks planned for the week, and later we arrived at the first project, a small, charming building – Vinzi Rast.

“The project is really inspiring, because it connects people from different social contextual backgrounds.“ 
(Nadja, participant of UCELAB)


After visiting the building and hearing Renate’s testimony about Vinzi Rast, we prepared a cross-cultural Italian and Indian meal. The aim was to cook together, to share our culinary knowledge, but also cultural knowledge around the cooking and then the meal with all the participants.
