Unperfekthaus, Essen

← Back to Patrons

“The Unperfecthouse is a new approach in helping people to try out their ideas, start projects, to experiment with different ideas without being broke if an idea does not succeed. In contrast to known approaches, we do not select projects up front and we do not give big support only to those which we predict will be successfull, but instead we give little support to ALL projects.“
