Seminar and Workshops for the Freiwilliges Ökologisches Jahr Berlin | Dec.15

In December 2015 I was invited to represent Kunst-Stoffe and give a seminar in the context of the Freiwilliges Ökologisches Jahr, a program where teenagers do a one year internship in a chosen ecological-organization.

After a presentation about plastics and the solutions to its environmental impact, the group was split into two. One group upcycled plastic bags while the other used old newspapers to braid paper-baskets and boxes.

Potsdamer Umweltfest | 27.09.2015

In September 2015 me and my colleague Joaquina were invited to the Potsdamer Umweltfest to do an upcycling workshop with plastic bags. A lot of kids and parents participated and made all kinds of colorful products out of the plastic bags.

Musical instrument workshop in the Bundeskanzleramt | 29-30.8.15

In August 2015 Kunst-Stoffe was invited to give an upcycling workshop for the “Tag der offenen Tür” in the Bundeskanzleramt. In the workshop we built musical instruments out of waste material brought from the Kunst-Stoffe Lager.

We also built a smaller stage with a microphone, two loudspeakers and D.I.Y amplifiers, where the kids could play with their new, self-made instruments.
