creative-strategies-conf-in9th – 14th of September 2013, ufaFabrik, Berlin (Germany)

Building on the experience of their first event in 2012 (on which we reported on Cultura21’s webmagazine: click here to read our article in German language) this one-week seminar organized by ufaFabrik in Berlin for cultural operators proposes a common reflection and “a time of intense experiences sharing around the potential creative strategies of sustainability”. The participants will get indicators for their own professional backgrounds. This week aims to offer an opportunity for a reflection, discussion and discovery of some practical examples of existing practices. It will be composed by six full-days of activities including: workshops, lectures, exploring sustainable places and projects in Berlin, initiation about straw bale building, artistic expression, social interaction. (The Seminar is organised within the framework of the “Engine Room Europe” project of the European network Trans Europe Halles.)

The number of participants is limited to 20 people. For the participants all travel and accommodation costs will be covered. There might be a small fee for food (related to the financial standards in your home country) and extra costs (upgraded hotel standard).
