The mission of LiTE-HAUS is to encourage cross-cultural communication by connecting people through art. This non-profit organization founded by Trinidadian-American artist Debbie Davies in 2016 gives emerging artists an opportunity to reach the art-loving audience of Berlin. In three bright white rooms Davies hosts exhibitions, events, projects, and workshops which address various environmental issues. The definition of "environmental" goes beyond ecological concerns and involves the diverse cultural environment of modern cities. Berlin is a mosaic of ethnicities, religions, a​nd economic classes. Like many large metropolitan cities it's diversity is both energizing, yet sometimes polarizing. LiTE-HAUS focuses on provocative issues using art and culture as a tool for building bridges. Through collaborations and pushing the boundaries of art’s definition, LiTE-HAUS hopes to bring people together and encourage conversation; something Davies feels is much needed in modern Germany. By forming a network with global partners, the work of international and local artists are featured monthly. LiTE-HAUS is a beacon in the diverse Neukölln community.
