Kulturzentrum E-Werk e.V. in Erlangen has been one of the largest cultural centers in Germany for 35 years. It is operated by an association and a limited liability company and houses a movie theater and four performance venues of various sizes. We are visited by 250,000 - 300,000 guests each year. We educate multiple trainees and employ more than 130 people; we are also supported by nearly 80 volunteers.
We present over 200 live acts each year in nearly every genre from hip-hop to singer-songwriter and offer concepts ranging from poetry slams and cabarets to readings for kids. There are also a wide variety of parties. E-Werk promotes the local and regional community and cooperates with a variety of associations, private individuals and initiatives in all genres.
Regular group meetings, advisement and classes are offered. (A bicycle workshop, a pottery workshop, a juggling group, a computer group, a game group, a writers group, a screen printing workshop). Cultural work for young people is one of our central concentrations.
