about krakelee

krakelee is coll­ec­tively orga­ni­zed and has one goal: a coope­ra­ti­ve tech­no­club in Cologne.

what we want

We want a sub­ver­si­ve place that brings tog­e­ther music cul­tu­re with socio-poli­ti­cal aspi­ra­ti­ons. A place for soli­da­ry and self-deter­mi­ned tog­e­ther­ness. We want a room for dancing and a place for dre­a­ming. For us, clubs are more than just rooms with loud music and colorful lights: They are places whe­re peo­p­le enter into a rela­ti­onship with each other. We want to shape this tog­e­ther­ness in such a way that ever­yo­ne can relax and let go. 

who we are

We are a coll­ec­ti­ve of curr­ent­ly ten peo­p­le with dif­fe­rent expe­ri­en­ces and com­pe­ten­ces. For many years we’­ve been orga­ni­zing par­ties, fes­ti­vals, cul­tu­ral and poli­ti­cal events on a vol­un­t­a­ry basis. We are united by the desi­re to expand Colo­gne’s cul­tu­ral and club sce­ne with new, alter­na­ti­ve offe­rings. Sin­ce spring 2020, we have been deve­lo­ping ide­as and con­cepts for a coope­ra­ti­ve tech­no club.. The foun­ding event of krakelee eG i.G. took place on June 20, 2022.

how we work

Our col­la­bo­ra­ti­on is coll­ec­ti­ve, cri­ti­cal of hier­ar­chy and orga­ni­zed socio­cra­ti­cal­ly. Our pro­ces­ses are struc­tu­red in a clear and com­pre­hen­si­ble man­ner so that we can imple­ment our plan effec­tively and in a way that con­ser­ves resources. 

We regard our work as a con­ti­nuous lear­ning and deve­lo­p­ment pro­cess. Tha­t’s why we want to estab­lish a lively cul­tu­re of dis­cus­sion and feed­back that enables ever­yo­ne invol­ved to learn from and with each other. Do you have feed­back or suggestions?
