A new home for the young Telfs subculture

A new home for the young Telfs subculture

In the new “Kultur Weberei” at Telfs there are no restrictions, but there is a lot of passion for cultural initiatives. It can go from the sounds of a Telf band to a local rock band very quickly. No one is left out in the old Pischfabrik. Because the new project creates space for everyone, as demonstrated at the opening ceremony last Friday.

It was clear to artist Jesse Grande that there was a great need for this in the commercial city of Telfs, which has a population of about 16 thousand people. He is the president of the association “Kultur Weberei” and identified the lack of opportunities for the subculture: “There is a lack of space in which young people can be creative in a low-threshold way and so we tried or are still trying to meet the need.”

…but spinning cultural ideas with bands and such is frankly desirable

A new spirit in a historic location

Now “textile culture” must make this possible. Its a real place of worship with a lot of history. After all, the building was originally a Loden factory, and later housed the “Spätschicht” disco and then the “Riddim Bar”. It was cleaned and demolished. Windows even appeared behind layers of wallpaper and plaster walls. Now culture is woven into the historic halls.

“We also want to hold multi-genre events, but we are also looking at children's theatre, theatre, cabarets, perhaps seminars as additional training events, perhaps even a web workshop or music sessions and concerts as well as clubs with DJs.” Patrick Scharf, head of the association's representative, said. There are many ideas for initiatives and events, but there should be no limits at the moment. “We are very open and warmly invite everyone to host events with us.”

Event ideas range from seminars, children's theatre, cabarets, concerts and clubs, said Board Vice Chairman Patrick Scharf.

In order to put these plans into practice, young people interested in culture founded the association “Kultur Weberei”. This association is the one that brings together half of the chamber's program. The other half is played by everyone together. “In Tyrol you know these traditional clubs which are very important for local life and they often have a rehearsal bar or a club, but Telfs has grown a lot and that's why there are many clubs looking for a bar or event location and we are a good idea as well,” says Scharf. Example point of contact.

Don't “cook your own soup”

This is especially true for young groups that do not have a rehearsal site or do not have much experience on stage. “Many young people, young adults and other talented people from all generations have space to live out their talents,” said club member Katharina Klug, explaining the big goal. Overall, Chairman Jesse Grande is convinced that everyone gets along well with everyone. That's why it's about taking everyone with you. “We're not so big at Telfs that everyone can cook their own soup, we do something together,” he said.

Even if almost anything were possible here, the cultural fabric cannot spin gold. The association is funded through voluntary donations. The municipality also lends a helping hand: “We of course support a lot of cultural institutions, especially in Telv, high culture with Tyrolean folk plays and many other first-class cultural events and there must be a place for subculture and youth. Mayor Christian Harting said: “ We promote it accordingly.”

Especially in times like these, when you can see what's happening to culture in other communities, it's important to “stick with it,” adds cultural officer Theresa Shrum. “It's an amazing sign that we can stand there today and celebrate this opening,” she said happily. Spinning dreams and ideas is explicitly encouraged in the new “weaving culture.”
