The Temporary Trampoline House in Exhibition Space Q

From March 5 – 15, 2009, The Asylum Dialogue Tank (ADT) established a temporary Trampoline House in the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Art’s student gallery, Exhibition Space Q, in Copenhagen. The aim was to test how a user-driven culture house for asylum seekers, refugees, and Danish citizens could work.

The house had a Café, a Children’s Corner, a Hair Salon, and a multifunctional space. In the house, ADT hosted language and dance classes, legal counseling and study groups, film screenings and video workshops, debates and lectures, flea/swop market and guided tours to some of the Danish asylum centers. Attracting 50-100 visitors a day from all spectra of Danish society, the temporary Trampoline House was huge success and testified to the great need for a culture house where asylum seekers, refugees, and concerned Danish citizens could meet and learn from one another. When The Temporary Trampoline House closed, ADT had grown into a large network counting more than 65 members and 100 volunteers, who collectively decided to form a self-governing institution that would work to raise funds to establish a permanent Trampoline House in Copenhagen.
