Dortmund’s U-Tower


Centre for Art and Cre­ativ­ity

Dortmund’s U-Tower is a new type of cul­tur­al centre with art ex­hib­i­tions, re­search, cul­tur­al edu­ca­tion and cre­ativ­ity all un­der one roof. It is a sym­bol of the cul­tur­al re­viv­al and struc­tur­al change in the Ruhr Area. The vari­ous cul­tur­al in­sti­tu­tions and or­gan­isa­tions based in the tower co­oper­ate to de­liv­er in­nov­at­ive pro­grammes and events with an in­ter­na­tion­al reach, in­clud­ing ex­hib­i­tions, film pro­grammes, work­shops, lec­tures, dis­cus­sions, con­certs, club even­ings, and video and sound in­stall­a­tions.

The ten­ants of the U-Tower are al­ways ready to col­lab­or­ate. They in­clude Mu­seum Os­t­wall, Hart­ware Medi­en­Kun­stVer­ein, the Cul­tur­al Of­fice of the City of Dortmund, Dortmund Uni­versity of Ap­plied Sci­ences and Arts, the Tech­nic­al Uni­versity of Dortmund, the european centre for cre­at­ive eco­nomy (ecce), the Kino im U e.V. as­so­ci­ation, which op­er­ates the RWE For­um, and pa­nUrama GmbH, which is re­spons­ible for the gast­ro­nom­ic ven­ues in Dortmund’s U-Tower – the city’s Centre for Art and Cre­ativ­ity.
