Ulrike Anna Bleier
Ulrike Anna Bleier (*1968) lives in Cologne and Oberpfalz. She has received multiple awards for her literary work, most recently a work stipend from the Kunststiftung NRW and a writer-in-residence stipend in Quebec, Canada. Her debut novel, Schwimmerbecken (Swimmer’s Pool) made the 2017 hot list of the ten best books published by independent publishers. She supervises the project Kölner Kulturpaten (Cologne Culture Patrons) and brings people together at the meeting place of business and art. In Bergisches Land, Ulrike Anna Bleier offers an invitation to hike along with her on the historic street of labor and to tell your own stories. Why do we work, what work do we do? What significance does work have for us, what improvements do we desire? A digital street of labor straight through Bergisches Land will be created from profiles and interviews.
