SOHO in Ottakring

SOHO in Ottakring is an independent, organized-by-artists art-festival in the 16th Viennese district, Ottakring. Due to the areas multicultural and multiethnic population it sets a strong focus on the issues of migration, integration and participation.

From 2002 to 2011 I have been responsible for the design of the festival’s website. In the beginning it was more or less a simple listing of all projects, events and artists. Due to the festivals comprehensive program and its general emphasis on issues of participation and integration I began to develop a content-management-system together with other programmers. This CMS allowed every single participant to document projects, announce events and set up new projects with any other festival participants.
