About the Venue 

This ground breaking European conference is being hosted at the Berlin’s former State Mint (Alte Münze), a historical building built in the 1930s by people who believed that “Germany belongs to Germans”. Against this rhetoric, our co-partner Migration Hub is now transforming the building into a centre that not only welcomes migrants but embraces diversity for collaboration and co-creation.
