Computer nostalgia
Long prepared - on April 27/28 the time had come. On the tables covered with white tablecloths, interested visitors found 5 "old-timers" of computer technology ready to play. Another 5 places simulated the "old-timers" on modern computer technology - everything was hands-on and hands-on. The children particularly enjoyed the pixelated games. These were still played using cassettes or floppy disks. It was also possible to show how, if you are interested, you can still get back to the originals of that time on modern devices.All in all - a success, even if the number of visitors did not meet our expectations.

Once a month, things get magical at the Neues Volkshaus Cotta. That's when the ErzählRaum e.V. from Dresden invites you to the Open Storytelling Stage.Guests come to listen, enjoy and tell stories. It's not just the members of the association (Brit Magdon, Jule Richter, Katharina Randel) who tell stories on stage - guests are also invited to tell stories at the table or on stage. Many a laugh is heard, but often there is also reverent silence as people listen to the exciting stories.This is accompanied by a glass of wine, a sip of beer or a soft drink and everyone goes home filled with the new stories they have heard.Until April on the 2nd Wednesday of the month, then on the 3rd Wednesday of the month, all those interested are invited to be whisked away into the world of storytelling.

Seniors' get-together 60+ on Shrove Tuesday
On 13.02.2024, no fewer than 14 senior citizens came together for their now weekly get-together. There have never been so many.It can't just be down to the pancakes. So word has got around that there's always something going on here on Tuesdays. In addition to thiscolorful event, the topics change every week. The plan is to sing together, play games and bingo, do memory training for the elderlyand much more. After 2 hours of fun, dancing and a polonaise, it was time to call it a day. After all, it was already lunch time. Everyone was very happy - and that's the main thing.

The upcoming events

Tip for June: Open Storytelling Stage on 19.06.24, 7 pm

The open storytelling stage in the new Volkshaus Cotta

"Tell, tell, tell - may your story keep the darkness at bay and bring forth the day! " With the words of Scheherezade, the Neue Volkshaus Cotta invites you to the Open Storytelling Stage.

An evening under the motto of sharing, the sharing of stories. Because it's not just professional storytellers who are allowed to tell stories here, no, the audience is invited to tell their own stories, whether they are self-experienced, legends or fairy tales. The result is a diverse, often surprising evening. An evening of stories that help us to build a bridge not only between night and day, but also between old and young, yesterday and today, the rising and setting sun, you and me.

We look forward to everyone coming to listen, to tell, to be inspired and to try things out. Nothing must, everything may (within the framework of good interaction)!

When? Wednesday, June 19, 2024, 7 p.m

With? Katharina Randel, Jule Richter from Erzählraum e.V.
