Located in Neukölln, the eighth borough of Berlin, Agora is housed in a bright building across five floors, providing a wide range of work spaces for all types of professionals.
Agora welcomes people and projects based on a philosophy reflecting their key values: diversity, self-organisation and social ties. The building features a vibrant working room, a silent working space, a multi-functional room, a café and best of all, a verdant and spacious garden.
By offering a wide range of functional spaces and co-working passes, Agora provides flexibility while working and an inspiring mixture between work and play at any given time. Available co-working passes include:
- Day pass: Work at Agora for a day for €16
- Five-day pass: Pick five days in one month to work there for €60
- Part-time pass: Work at Agora for three days a week for €138
- Full-time pass: Work there for five days a week for €184
- Fixed desk: Have your own spot at Agora for €248
The community redefines methods of interaction and co-working by collectively creating innovative solutions in the fields of food, sustainability, art and learning. Agora aims to do this by bringing together a range of initiatives in that field. They also host workshops reflecting their values. On 11 June 2016, for example, you can learn how worms will turn food scraps into nutritious compost for your plants. Check their calendar here to see all upcoming events!
Agora will open its second location in Berlin very soon. It will be housed in Kindl, a former beer brewery. More information on the second location to follow.
