Topic (SUB)Culture

Liveable even at night

Cottbus has a rich subculture that is worth supporting, supported by associations, voluntary organisations and commercial offerings. This free development is an enrichment for every city and is a decisive factor for quality of life, integrative offers and self-efficacy, as it is precisely here that open platforms promote a togetherness that is indispensable for exchange.
The SUB is in favour of expanding spaces in order to maintain and further promote these structures. Against the background of urban transformation and the ongoing structural change, Cottbus needs places for networking, trialling new forms of living and support services for start-ups. A night mayor is a first step in this co-operation, but it does not stop there.
Interim utilisation concepts for vacant commercial premises, ideally rent-free, are a good way of creating spaces for culture for little money, especially under these constantly changing conditions. An expansion of communication between creative artists and the authorities is absolutely desirable, as are simplifications in the bureaucratic process, for example through counselling services offered by the city.
In our view, street/neighbourhood and campus festivals are absolutely worth supporting in order to promote local affiliation and networking. For this reason, it is important to put institutions such as the city festival back into the hands of creative artists.

Cannabis model city Cottbus. We are so free

The model project represents an opportunity for the city of Cottbus to be a pioneer and actively shape the cannabis policy of the future. SUB’s proposal would be to restrict the sale of cannabis in the licensed model shops to adult residents of the model city of Cottbus. This would prevent the risk of “cannabis tourism”.
