The event will take place under the currently valid hygiene regulations. 40 years ago, women* occupied the factory and living spaces at Naunynstraße 72 and Mariannenstraße 6, a typical Berlin ensemble in a former chocolate factory. From this, the association Schokofabrik e. V. was founded, under whose umbrella a wide range of offers in the areas of education, counseling, crafts, culture, sports and wellness as well as living space for women* developed. The goal was to create (living) spaces and jobs for women*. On 1,200 square meters and 6 floors, the largest women's center in Europe was created. 

The "Schoko" is a place for contacts and communication among women*. Visitors* of all ages, different abilities, any origin or sexual orientation are welcome in the Schoko.
