Orientation Find Learning

The Kompass Initiative is an artistic-philosophical space for all young people between the ages of 16 and 26 who feel uncertain and disoriented in their current life steps. Be it through the upcoming graduation, uncertainties in studies, training or the profession. 

From July 16-22, 2023, we would like to invite you to become part of the Kompass Camp and work creatively and participatory together with our speakers and artists in this research space.



Where will the summer camp take me?

We want to create a space that supports you in your personal growth and in your steps of self-knowledge to the questions: "Who am I and where do I want to go?" In times of chaos, personal and social crises, it is often difficult to find clarity about your own path. The initiative's program is a toolbox for you to perceive yourself, your needs and desires and to be an active designer of your own life.

How does the camp work?

We spend seven days at the Pützerhof near Neunkirchen-Seelscheid. There's everything your heart desires: sun, nature and plenty of space for creative experiments. Plus, of course, a campfire site for nightly jam sessions.

Guiding organization

Martin, Hannah and Lilli have been supporting young people in their development of potential and orientation since 2019. They support orientation and transformation processes at eye level, using innovative methods to explore and develop potential and competencies. Hannah and Lilli will lead the workshop.


Guiding organization

Yamila works as a freelance artist and art therapist in Cologne. For her work it is always an important part to deal with her own topics.

Participants create their self-portrait in clay in their workshop.
This is not only about depicting a face or body, but the view should also be directed inward and can be expressed quite individually in the further design.

Ziran - out of itself

A neutral space in which we can experience behavioral patterns and blocked energies in a non-judgmental way creates (out of itself) possibilities of expression for new and creative flow.
