Contribute your project.
It starts in the world right around you. Are there situations in your everyday-life that you perceive of as cold, as lacking warmth? On your block, in your town and its architecture, in the social or institutional structures you encounter, in the working envirionment, in communication with other people, in the goods you consume or beyond?
Identify these situations. These are your starting points. How might you spontaneously alter these situations through creativity, through art? How could you take one of these instances and warm it up, make it more human? Choose the idea that makes you the most curious and brings you the most joy – even if at first, you have no clue how it might actually work.
Take inspiration through the projects on this website. But trusting your own ideas is way better! Think about intervention, action, installation, social invention, utopias, stories, sounds.
Don’t overlook humor as a fantastic vehicle to communicate both odds and obstacles. Let courage grow. Don’t overplan. Mostly less is more.Your project does not necessarily need a lot of money. You can realise a powerful idea with just 2 Eur! Use recycled material as much as possible.
Realise your idea on location, alone or together with others. Document your project with photos.
Please send us a short, descriptive document about your project with a few photos and a text of 50 – 200 words in English language. Send a single PDF per project [maximum size: 3 MB.]
