Actions and reactions from 5 different countries: 5 creative activist concerned groups came together to bring street actions to street of our towns (Riedau, Austria; Prague, CR; Berlin, Germany; Athens, Greece; Tenerife, Spain, in order to raise awareness, animate our communities and bring good news into our living spaces.
Kulturlabor Trial&Error as a part of stream for change realized many actions and activities supported by the stream for change network. Now you can read and see what happened the past months.
Colorize the city
with moss graffiti
It is said that moss absorbs large amounts of carbon dioxide; to benefit from this we would have to cover all of berlin to start purifying the air a little. We started with some ugly wall to hopefully makes someone else’s day a little better. You can find information online about how to make moss graffiti. We decided for a mixture with some fresh picked moss, buttermilk and sugar. Read more in the original post!
Herb plant give away
with seed bombs and urban trash mobilee
The idea of this action is to promote people growing their own food and to understand plants. Seedbombs are designed to enable seeds to be sown in a hard to reach place. Perfect tool to go wild with flowers and reclaim your nature! Our invention of urban trash mobile is one of the most beautiful way to promote herbs growing in ones kitchen.
with Critical Masks
Join your local critical mass and help animate it with costumes or noisy objects and musical instruments. With our handmade beautiful anti pollution masks we want to show that cycling is not only more fun but also healthier. Read more in this post.
a dumpster diving comparison
We found it very interesting to see how our ecological footprint is actually influenced by dumpster diving. We collected data of our food consumption and data of our dumpster diving action. Analysis is coming soon.
Our choice swap your clothes!
There are so many clothes on this world created through exploration and under inhuman conditions. We decided to not be part of this any longer but the show alternatives and thus we opened our own swapshop! Here we exchange clothes and shoes and lern how to create our own.
Open green tours
aka trash awareness walk
A real alternative to classic tours is the trash awareness walk. Not only realizing our own ecological footprint but also realizing the trash in our environment and figuring out how to prevent public pollution problems.
Local Healthy food
in shape of vegan cakes
With really delicious vegan cakes, supported by local farmers carrots, apples and berries we invited to pure treat and pleasure. Starting with a communal vegan cake baking and the sharing of the recipes, we introducing some first time baker into its philosophy.
A week without Plastic
- a closer examination of the plastic bottle
We realized that not touching plastic for one week is a too big task for us, but not knowing why plastic is actually so evil we decided to have closer at it: the plastic bottle. After experimenting with the material, Jorge, our in-house chemist introduced everyone to the world of plastic. Lesson learned: if there is one way, it’s try to avoid plastic.
