The Kiezspinne is a non-profit association with around 100 members - legal and natural persons - and was founded on April 22, 1993 as a neighborhood interest group in the Lichtenberg district of "Frankfurter Allee Süd". The association has an honorary board.
The name "Kiezspinne FAS" is intended to express the main concern. The association creates a network between the various initiatives, projects, sponsors, public institutions and committed neighbors in the FAS neighborhood.
