A company run by pupils? Every year pupils from Poland and Germany meet in Trebnitz to learn extra-curricular skills. Some of them run the Cafe zum Glück on weekends and in the summer already and join the workshops to meet new members. This time, we were invited to offer a workshop in basic collaborative building through carpentry. The task: building a side-board custom made for the needs of the cafe. As a bonus, we can use the green classroom on Campus Schloss Trebnitz for the workshop. We are looking forward to meet the students!
baucircus has been invited by the HKW (Haus der Kulturen der Welt) to contribute to the project Scools of Sustainability with an input on participatory methods of spatial coproduction. Durig the project S.O.S., artisits work with pupils to investigate climate interventions on spatial and curricular levels under the following disclaimer: "The climate crisis is the greatest challenge of our era. How can the experiences that young activists of the Fridays for Future movement gather outside of school can be taken back to school? Artistic approaches for a climate-neutral school." Meet us at Haus der Materialisierung at Alexanderplatz on 5th of May at 5pm.
