Access to the occupational realm is the most important factor (besides education) for successful integration of foreigners.
In this intercultural workshop, designers, architects, and artisans who recently immigrated to Austria, together with local
changemakers and people from the creative fields, will take up the question of how design can contribute to maximizing the
refugees’ potential with regard to integration and work.The aim of this IDRV-moderated workshop is to envision abstract ideas in implementation scenarios; in addition, the workshop
offers an opportunity for dialog and networking with colleagues working in Vienna’s creative scene. Limited number of participantsTo register, please send an email by 15 June 2016 with a brief rationale for why you want to participate to:

VIENNA BIENNALE App
Nominate your "Changemakers" for the StadtFabrik topics!
The ongoing VIENNA BIENNALE Ideas for Change app serves as a participative tool for the StadtFabrik. Changemakers can continue to be nominated for the main themes of the StadtFabrik and add to the densifying network of established creative industrial production in the city.
The changemaker nominated by the StadtFabrik [City factory] for the area INCLUSION, A Wiener, halal!, makes the typical Austrian “Wiener” hotdog stand accessible to a broader audience by adapting it to Islamic dietary restrictions
(“halal”). This artistic intervention merges stereotypes and culinary traditions and inspires encounters, dialog, and mutual
respect through common mealtimes.
