The story of the house
Christianshavns Beboerhus was squatted by the people of the neighbourhood in 1975, because they wanted a place to meet up for cultural activities.
In 1976, the City council of Copenhagen agreed to buy the house, and people started an association for the users of the house, the "Beboerhusforening".
Through the years, the house has primarly been based on voluntary work.
Today, a paid staff group of 8 people, supported by a lot of volunteers, are running the house.
The house is ruled by consensus democracy and autonomy, by the users, the staff and the members of the house association.
It has its own economy, but is supported by the City of Copenhagen.
Christianshavns Beboerhus is for everyone, we try to keep the prices low, so every one can afford to use the facilities of the house.
The most important thing is to strengthen the grass roots spirit, the culture and the music.
