Auróra Community Centre, Budapest
Aurora is a cultural and community centre and self-sustaining social enterprise founded by Marom Budapest, an organisation of Jewish students committed to social action.
Aurora works to support minority groups, with LGBT and Roma groups based in upstairs offices. As well as hosting events in house, they’re also involved in the popular Bánkitó Festival and the annual Pride Parade. Aurora’s huge network of activists and volunteers as well as the office space Pneuma rents in Aurora will be an important basis of the project.

Working in voluntary based working groups, The City is for All is one of the major civil policy makers in terms of housing issues.
Közélet Iskolája (School of Public Life), Budapest
The School of Public Life is a community-based training, research and development center that develops democratic culture in Hungary by improving the citizenship skills of people living in social exclusion, supporting social movements and groups that fight for social justice, pursuing participatory and community-based research about social exclusion and democracy, and supporting the active public participation of disadvantaged individuals.
