The Lagerhalle was founded in 1976. As a sociocultural center, people can not only participate in more than 500 cultural events per year, but they can also be creative and get involved in many themes. The events are varied and reach many people in the region of Osnabrueck: concerts, political cabaret and comedy, theater, readings, lectures, discussions, poetry slams, cinema, and music for children and dance parties. There are several festivals taking place in the Lagerhalle. The center is also active in the cultural integration of refugees.
A very important part of our work is to enable actions for civic, volunteer or creative engagement. Participants can be creative and artistically active through various workshops. The Lagerhalle is a meeting place and place of action for citizens' initiatives, self-help groups and initiatives. With its space and advice offer, the Lagerhalle promotes volunteer work of the groups and initiatives.
