Alongside the festival center at Alexanderplatz, there are also three outposts in different locations throughout the city, situated at the threshold to other independent arts communities and life in Berlin's neighborhoods. They will provide information about the festival as well as tickets. In addition, each outpost is created, performed and filled with life by an artistic team or artist. This year’s outposts are Platzhaus on Helmholtzplatz, the community garden Allmende-Kontor on Tempelhofer Feld and PANKE culture in Wedding. This results in four different site-specific, participative art projects that receive the impulses of PAF and broadcast them out into the city.
Infopoints: May 29 to June 2 from 12:00 pm to 6:00 pm
Tickets: May 29 to June 1 from 12:00 pm to 6:00 pm
The community garden Allmende-Kontor on Tempelhofer Feld was founded over the course of pioneer projects on the former airfield through an initiative of 13 community garden activists, researchers and friends of urban gardening and urban agriculture. The first 10 raised garden plots were created on an area of 5,000 square meters by some 20 participants on April 16, 2011. Since then, the garden and its community with more than 250 raised garden plots and over 600 co-gardeners have flourished – completely self-organized. The association Gemeinschaftsgarten Allmende-Kontor e.V. was founded on June 5, 2014.

Platzhaus is located both on the outskirts and right in the middle of Helmholtzplatz, a former public bathroom facility that has developed into a welcoming place within the neighborhood where people with low socio-economic potential can also experience social participation. This is a house whose contours were outlined in drawings from the last decade and whose architecture remains flexible in the sense of togetherness and discussion.
