On windy saturdays afternoon, 19th of November, cozy and warm rooms of Open Design City where filled with cakes, people and knowledge about sustaining events: friendly crew of Recycled creativity (RC) festival arranged evening to look back at the RC 2011 through photos, documentary as well as spend time in intensive
working sessions as well as non-formal chats with like-minded people.
The idea of the workshop was to build solid community for the Recycled creativity event on 2012 (if we manage to pass the end of the world:) through realizing the strong and the weak sides of the individual team members, draw basic framework of top-down and bottom-up approaches in planning events as well as looking at other examples in order to go through process of developing idea for Recycled Creativity festival 2011. Workshop was indeed really well populated - a colourfull and vivid mixture of people, who have been involved in the festival as well as visitors of RC 2011 and people, for whom it was the first time to meet with the idea of “recycling creativity”. In fact, these different levels of experiences and expectations nicely contributed to the workshop in order to create open, friendly “family” atmosphere, where each of the visitors could share their ideas and intentions as well as eat loads of nice vegan cakes :)
The evening was concluded with premierre of documentary about Recycled Creativity festival, made by Sina Hackney as well as chats arround interactive photobook by tau*mh. Thanks also to Julian from #occupyberlin, Alice from FruitSaladBoutique, Jay from Makerplatz as well as Rūta from ModesTalka (LV), who shared their knowledge and experience to inspire as well as invite people to join their work!
