Framed e.V. is a non-profit organization, supporting culture in Berlin, and/while believing in the power of art to create real bridges between different people and cultures.
Offering a space for social and cultural interaction, we aim to bring together a community of artists, musicians and their audience in an engaging experience at an intimate setting.
The engagement of audiences with the performance gives way to something elusive and hard to pin-down: In the space between performer, premises, visual art and those attending, there is a special experience that is time-specific yet memorable – something akin to inspiration, in that it encourages further creativity and openness to others.
Our story begins in 2017, with intimate shows and events at Yael Nachshon Levin’s own living room. After 15 magical events, Yael understood the demand and thirst of people to expose and interact with music, art and other people in this kind of special and “private” setting. The next step was organising monthly events, in unique locations around Berlin, that were carefully chosen to provide an engaging backdrop for the music and art on display: artists’ studios, private homes, industrial spaces and other non-conventional venues that contribute to a laid-back and friendly atmosphere.
Eventually, this long and beautiful road, led us to opening our very own CULTURAL SALON in Friedrichshain.
Our vision was creating a true and open cultural salon where everyone can feel at home while being surrounded by new and heart opening culture. And this is exactly what we did!
