The Plenum is a regular meeting of all people involved with the space to talk about things and decide stuff. If you have any topics to add, go right ahead! Please sign your points with your name (by adding a "--~~~~" after your text).

After the Plenum, please follow the tasks outlined in Cycling the Plenum to archive the discussion.


  • The Plenum is an institution to decide what the space should look like, physically and in other ways, such as virtually.
  • Things concerning the space should be discussed at a plenum.
  • Everyone on-site can participate in that process, member or otherwise.
  • Everyone can lead a plenum; no need for board members to do that.
  • Topics should ideally be announced on the Plenum wiki page beforehand.
  • The Plenum should be held in a language that everyone participating understands.
  • Scheduling: Second Thursday of the month at 8 pm and the last Sunday after the cleanup (which starts at 11 am)
  • Plenums should be no longer than 90 minutes.

Next Plenum: Sunday, 28th May after the cleanup which start at 11am

Stuff from the past

What was discussed at the last Plenum? What's the current status of those things? 20230511 Plenum

  • The fuse has not tripped again since we changed out the power strip. Seems like we fixed it, fingers crossed!
  • MGH replaced power meter upstream of us and our power was turned off without notice. But fortunately nothing broke.
  • Reminder: Sommerfest is at June 9th, registration link is in #general in Slack if you want to attend (its free). (You have to scroll up a little)
  • Crowded Project Palette: Nico will take the scooter

MGH video surveillance on kreativquartier

MGH will install 13 video surveillance cameras on the whole Kreativquatier and keep the data for 96 hours. Recordings are only used if there is some damage or similar and a four-eyes principle is enforced. We will get a camera looking over our yard on the corner of Halle 6 (the green builing).

Pressure cleaner

The green bosch pressure cleaner is slowly but steady dying. I want to replace it with a Nilfisk that I will buy/own and share free2use. --ⓒ②② (🅃🄰🄻🄺) 11:54, 28 May 2023 (CEST)

Anything you don't feel comfortable with within the space? What would you like to change or to be changed?

Robert Netz - Request to rent an a Box. Are boxes available? Robert Netz - Request for a special storage space for my project. Time limit 2 weeks

    • Plenum Idea: Transform two of the empty boxes to temporary storage boxes as a pilot project. Re-evaluate on the upcoming Plena. Likely: any member can take them for one week at a time by writing their name on a list on the door. German owns the pilot and will come up with a concept and fomalities.
    • approved unanimously
