© Zusa
Zusa is an international organisation working for and with cultural and civil society actors that strive for change in their social and cultural contexts. They practice and promote the art of collaboration as a force for systemic change. Furthermore they create, open and give space to process, playfulness and experimentation.

Zusa is based in Berlin and works in Europe, North Africa, West Asia and beyond. At the core of our work and values is a do-it-together approach. Together with partners they create and implement programmes based on collaborative principles. Zusa sees their role primarily as supporting others to get better at their work by introducing tools of collaboration, acting as a backbone and forging more alliances. They like trying new ways of working and remain curious about the possibilities that our different experiences, knowledge, and perspectives can bring to their joint work.

zusa was established in 2021, born out of the Cultural Exchange department of MitOst e.V.. The Cultural Exchange department has developed and implemented programmes such as Tandem – Culture without Borders and Actors of Urban Change. Now zusa operates independently while remaining a driving force in the MitOst network. Since its founding in 1996, MitOst connects active citizens in an open and diverse network in Europe and its neighbouring regions.

The residents will be offered with networking opportunities with Berlin local culture scene as well as external mental health support in forms of individual sessions and group circles which are a fixed component of the residency programme in zusa organisation. There will be a possibility to slow down, take a break in nature in Brandeburg.
