    The Community Hub is a platform where knowledge and skill sharing are made easy. It is a framework for organising workshops, classes, and other activities in a simple and accessible way. The Community Hub embodies GSBTB’s philosophy and its intention to give agency to everybody regardless of their background. It is a platform for empowerment that supports and enables everyone to share their skills with others. Everyone is welcome to participate, and it is free of charge.

      What is the Community Hub about?

      The Community Hub is a social setting where people can share their skills, in the form of classes, workshops or activities.

      Not only is the Community Hub designed for newcomers in Berlin but also for people who want to expand their network. The activities are hosted by volunteers of the community. Everyone could become a volunteer and support the project by suggesting ideas and also by conducting workshops. People who obtain the status of a class instructor don’t have to be professionals. Certification is not needed to become an instructor, it’s enough that you embrace the idea of sharing skills and knowledge with others. GSBTB helps volunteers in the workshop planning process, particularly in terms of communication and advertising.

      Community Hub aims to provide a variety of free activities and embody the idea of sharing knowledge. The motto of the project is “From the Community for the Community”, as people from the community provide diverse services to people within the community.

      Community Hub activities

      The Community Hub has offered workshops on various topics including women’s reproductive health (together with The Storytelling Postcard), and weekly classes in yoga, fashion design, MS Excel, photography, makeup, voice activation, theater, and Persian dance.
