Description: 'ARSPROTOTO!Kollektiv' is a group of young artists and activists in Berlin / Beograd who, with their this year’s project 'ARSPROTOTOkunst' create a platform for all those who want to spread their message over art. In cooperation with the group, the participants receive the opportunity to get to know peace-activism better and to integrate the won skills into their own activism. Within, the participants will receive creative tools, which can help to widen possibilities of expression. With this qualification, the volunteers can constitute new approaches for their social-engagement in their direct environment.
We invite all disciplines to gather for two weeks in Berlin at the beautiful Lake ‘Müggelsee’: Summer at its best including the arts!
Type of Work: The participants will work on a project in their spare time, which may be individual or group work with a thematic reference. At the end, the results will be integrated into one of the numerous art festivals in the city and presented in the form of an exhibition, organized by the group and curated through ‘ARSPROTOTOkollektiv’. Furthermore, we would like to try to form solid partnerships between similar organizations/ projects from Berlin and Southeastern Europe.
Study Theme: Workshops and seminars on these topics:
- Community Building
- Symbiosis of art-educational methods and peace work: Conveying of creative tools as an enlargement of possibilities within activism
- International Peace Work
- Self-organisation of Peace Work: Expertise training to develop own projects and their successional implementation
Reflective tours through Berlin; Visits of similar projects and organisations; Visiting galleries and art-museums
Accommodation: In a great youth hostel at the beautiful lake 'Müggelsee' near Berlin in multi-shared bungalows; Self-catering in the kitchen of the accommodation
Requirements: Interest in creative work; the will to integrate artistic processes into political education; motivation to conduct their own projects within encounter- and peace work in your homeland
Approximate Location: At Lake Müggelsee near Berlin, the capital city of Germany
Notes: The socio-political challenge for this camp is the encounter between young adults from Germany and the Balkan countries, because it is necessary due to the early past and the still precarious situation, in the course of the reconciliation work to create a way of getting to know each other, and to reduce prejudices and stereotypes.
