The Glocal Neighbors Song

During their stay in Jessy Cohen, Sylvia and Stephan wrote a song about the Glocal Neighborhood Exchange and talked with some of the participants about their contribution to the project.

Glocal Neighbors Song

by Sylvia and Stephan

This song is about the glocal neighborhood
of Stuttgart Nordbahnhof
and Jessy Cohen
this song is about the glocal neighborhood
about their mutual exchange

Both of those neighborhoods are quite diverse
and have to deal with a narrow purse
but in culture they are rather rich
and on culture they have built a bridge

Different kinds - of people from each neighborhood
social activists, architects and artists
Hold meetings on the internet to share ideas
to learn about and from each one

Jessy Cohen is a disrict of Holon
on philanthropy it´s built upon
immigration is a key factor
when it comes to limn its character

In the heart of Jessy Cohen is an Art Center
with a carpenter               
run by open software           
an archive for videos and artist shows
operated by a marvelous team       

Stuttgart Nordbahnhof is under threat
gentrification seems to be ahead
between train tracks, grave yard and the park
big investments gonna leave its mark

Wagenhalle is the art hub in the area
that´s from where we are       
and 80 more creatives           
who live and work in this historic train depot
Some of them we brought with us
to reflect on and discuss
introducing glocal neighborhood

The artist sleeps the whole day through
it - seems that he has caught the flue  
but in fact he´s working while he dreams
on implementing meaning by new means

The ar-chitects are more the hands-on ones
the ones who get things done
they start immediately
not only building chairs and kitchen blocks
but a whole community!

Social-workers in each neighborhood take care
about the worries people have to bare
their skills help them to get along
to manage life by getting strong

The art - directors have the overview
of all the things to do
they pull the cash on board
they reflect - the context in their theory
and cast it into noteworthy words.


Urban gardeners are ploughing through
ex-periencing growth anew
they cultivate far more than kale
namely on a social scale

If the neighbors and their kids come to participate
the project turns out great
it brings us all together
people from all walks of life
keep it nice beyond your space
put a smile upon your face
celebrating glocal neighourhood
