DIE PR-BERATER as “Culture Godparents” of the art centre Wachsfabrik
Since 1979 numerous independent artists are living and working in the old wax factory (“Wachsfabrik”) built in 1912, next to the Industriestraße in Cologne’s district Rodenkirchen. They have created a small, creative oasis. But now the operating company decided to cancel contracts of a majority of these artists.
A new business park is about to replace the creative centre.
In order to prevent this, DIE PR-BERATER are engaged with fighting for the preservation of the Wachsfabrik in various forms.
We ask all our customers, partners and friends to support a petition to preserve the Wachsfabrik. The city of Cologne should support the Wachsfabrik as a fundamental part of Cologne’s cultural landscape. Every voice counts. Just do it!
Rescue the Wachsfabrik!

Living above rails – Innovative construction project in Cologne
DIE PR-BERATER are staging a trend-setting housing project. It is well known that Germany suffers from a housing shortage. This applies in particular to urban areas. In Cologne's district Braunsfeld, the builders Friedrich Wassermann and WvM Immobilien are therefore breaking new grounds: for the first time in Germany, they will construct buildings with a tunnel inside.
DIE PR-BERATER have now been commissioned to accompany this pioneering urban development project with press and media work to inform experts and the general public about the innovative construction site.
"Living above rails offers enormous potential for living space in large cities. We are certain that the construction project is of great interest to the media. It has the potential to set an example throughout Germany," explains Katharina Klein, Project Manager at DIE PR-BERATER.
Only recently, the TU Dortmund and the Pestel Institute published a study on the potential of post-compaction. This is estimated at up to 2.7 million apartments nationwide.

DIE PR-BERATER @ ARGE Building Law Conference
The 53rd Building Law Conference took place in Hamburg on 8 and 9 March. The conference is organized by the working group on construction law (ARGE Baurecht) of the German Lawyers' Association (Deutscher Anwaltverein). DIE PR-BERATER made sure that this time around 300 construction lawyers from German-speaking countries were present in Hamburg.
Renowned experts of their subject lectured on complex legal questions, as for instance the asserting of supplements based on the up-to-date legislation or the claim for damages on a fictitious basis. In addition, judges of the Federal Court of Justice are always among the speakers at the conferences.
"In addition to the training aspect, the conferences form a perfect framework for expanding one's own network. This is what we focus on when acquiring participants," explains project manager Guido Balke. "Especially the young lawyers know many of the 'big names' from the spines of their study literature. They can directly get in touch during the conference."
Since 2014, DIE PR-BERATER has been advising the largest professional organisation of lawyers specialised in building law in Europe on marketing and communication matters. In addition to press and media work, internet presence, newsletter and member marketing, this also includes the promotion of the building law conferences which take place twice a year.

Donations need for Müngersdorf memorial
As a Cologne-based company, DIE PR-BERATER supports the initiative of civil association Köln-Müngersdorf and the NS-Documentation Centre to erect a dignified commemorative site at the former deportation camp Köln-Müngersdorf.

Now, a new memorial site to recall the Nazi crimes committed at this place is to be erected in a way that is clearly perceptible for all Cologne’s townspeople. More information can be found here.
"Thanks to the memorial site, Cologne's citizens and visitors will be able to remember the atrocities that took place in Müngersdorf in an appropriate manner," emphasizes Thomas Müller, CEO of DIE PR-BERATER. "We appreciate the commitment of the civil association and are eager to help.”
