COVID-19 restrictions

We are able to continue to host professional artist residencies while following the recommended guidelines:

Open training will be closed in November
As we understand the rules, residencies will still be permitted and given that Studio 2 will now also be available for this, we have additional residency capacity. This will be available in minimum half day ‘blocks’. As we understand at the moment, up to 5 people and from maximum 2 different households will be able to share the space (minimum periods will be: 6 hours from 9am – 3pm, and 3.30pm- 9.30pm). The studio will be disinfected and ventilated between bookings.

Please get in touch with to book space.

Costs: If you or anyone in your group is a registered resident of Berlin (you have Berlin anmeldung, an artist and has no project funding from any other institution, you would be eligible for a subsidised price of 4 €/hr. Normal rates are 25 €/hr.


  • Katapult will be cleaned every day.
  • Floors will be cleaned every day.
  • All door handles will be cleaned with disinfectant spray on a regular basis.
  • Both studios will be aired out every day.

Do not visit Katapult, if you have:

  • Symptoms of fever, cough or difficulty breathing.

Opening Hours

Katapult aims to be open from 10am until 10pm, at least Monday-Friday, as well as weekends when usage allows. However, as the team currently works on a volunteer basis, you are responsible for ensuring that the space is open for training when you wish to visit. Please check the Calendar or our Facebook page for latest updates.

New Members

If you train at Katapult for the first time, please register as a member first. This includes signing the membership contract, being introduced to the space and its house rules and paying the annual membership fee of 15 Euro. This process is compulsory for any new member.

Aerial Space

The usage of the aerial rig costs 1 Euro per day on top of the above mentioned training prices. There are four rigging points that can be used simultaneously. For the first period we will work without a signup system, while we develop an online solution.

Pay before you train

We rely on the membership payments to cover our rent, so payment is always required in advance of training. Mostly, we work on an honesty system. However, periodic checks will be carried out, and anyone found to be training without having paid may be banned from using the space.

House Rules

The full house rules are available for reference in the entry area, and from the office. The basics are outlined below.

  • No outdoor shoes on the dance floor
  • No animals in the space
  • No smoking inside
  • No fire inside
  • No alcohol in the space before 5pm
  • No aerial while alone in the space
  • The space should be left as clean or cleaner than it is found
  • No food except in the kitchen and chillout space

Usage of the open training space

From time to time (once – twice a month), we may close the space in order to use it for other interesting artistic things, so there won’t always be open training in the big room. We will do our best to shift the open training to the smaller room when this happens, if it is available. We will let you know as much in advance as we are able to.
