The guest artists receive opportunities to perform to the Berlin audience. ufafabrik provides professional help in technical support (light and sound) as well as in media promotion and public relations.

The charming, village-style ufafabrik is situated in the heart of the city, close to the Tempelhof Airport, 20 minutes off from the nightbuzz of Berlin-Mitte. ufaFabrik offers to artists a unique structure like a “home away from home” in a lively athmosphere where private and public life is a unity.
Artists appreciate the challenge of ufafababrik, where one can choose to have a tranquile working possibility or to have easy access to the vibrant city with its cultural and social life.
As a public institute, ufafabrik is frequented by a very mixed audience. Artists may encounter with berliner artists and with local people from various backgrounds.
