Reading and music: Kisses on the ears guaranteed!

Authors from Ohrenkuss magazine (the title means “kiss on the ear” in English) have been writing for Futurium on the topic of mobility. The authors Daniel Rauers, Johanna von Schönfeld, Julian Göpel and Natalie Dedreux – all of whom have Down syndrome – will be reading out their wishes, dreams and questions in the Forum at 16:00 with musical accompaniment by Anton Berman.

The reading will take place in Plain Language and will be interpreted into German Sign Language.

Open workshop: Things from the Future

The workshop in the Futurium Lab will be opening its doors from 14:00 to 17:00. Everyone will have the opportunity to use their inner eye to look into the future – and build their own “thing from the future”.

From 14:00 to 16:00, interpretation into German Sign Language will be available. Visitors who would benefit from the latter are asked to inform staff at the information desk.

Guided tours of the exhibition

On this day, the regular guided tours of the house in German and English will be supplemented by special guided tours in German Sign Language (at 13:00, with prior registration) and in Easy German Language (at 15:00).

Berlin Parliament for People with Disabilities

At Futurium, visitors can watch the livestream of this year’s Berlin Parliament of People with Disabilities from 11:00 to 16:00. For the very first time, the event will be taking place in the Berlin House of Representatives. More information is available here.
