Bautzen's "Steinhaus" ("Stone House") has been independently-run by the Steinhaus e.V. association since 1995. Located centrally in the city of Bautzen, the sociocultural center offers children, young people and adults a structure and the space needed for the realization of their own ideas and projects. As a place to meet others, to engage in cultural and political education as well as actively contribute to a successful society, the Steinhaus in Bautzen is a place where art and cultural productions take place year-round. In the Steinhaus you can experience music, literature, theater, film, creative performances, lectures and discussions as well as participate in courses, workshops, projects, creative camps, competitions and civil initiatives.
