PROGRAM IN BAUMHAUS SPACE

Want to meet neighbors and other people who want to make the world a better place in Berlin? Our project space is a platform for meeting, events and workshops for a variety of people and organizations…

Check out our program below to see the schedule of events. And if you think something is missing, maybe you could create that event in Baumhaus yourself. Get inspired and involved in Baumhaus project space!

Gerichtstr. 23, front building, ground floor – the entire space is ground floor, we have a ramp to get in, and a barrier free bathroom (no handles). Please let us know if you have other special needs, we’ll try to provide support. Please note: The entire space is designated as an “Open Greeting Zone”, which means that it is a place where anyone can feel comfortable walking up to anyone else and introduce themselves. Our events are often bilingual in English & German. Please let us know if you don’t understand. Most of the time we can organize translation on the spot.

If not indicated otherwise: 3-8€ (pay-as-you-feel) for the space

You can find our events also at Facebook & sometimes Twitter

Community Night & Improvisational Groove Orchestra – vocal jam session
Apr 5 @ 16:00 – 21:30
Community Night + Improvisational Groove Orchestra (I.G.O.):  a fun way to connect through an engaging and energizing meditation…
 

Baumhaus T in GreenCome as early as 16:00 to join the cooking crew with The Real Junk Food Project: Berlin or a bit later to enjoy some informal networking, quick pitches and community building in our *Open Greeting Zone during the all-you-can-eat rescued bio food buffet. After dinner we dive into another **I.G.O. active meditative jam session…

We are looking forward to meeting with different groups and individuals to see what collaborations we can develop together.

*Pay-as-you-feel €3 – €8 :: We ask our guests to consider:
• their personal budget
• the value of their experiences in the Baumhaus
• the value of supporting the Baumhaus so that we can continue facilitating these and various other types of experiences.

Program:

16:00 – 19:30 Volunteer to help cook

17:00 – Doors Open – Chill and open networking in the “Open Greeting Zone”

19:30 – All you can eat rescued bio food buffet (pay as you feel, separate from entrance) + emergent networking and hang out. (Please take home some bio veggies and bread from our food sharing basket to save it from being wasted!)

20:15 – Announcements, News, Quick Pitches (1 min)

20:30 – a short provocation. Tonight’s theme :: TBD

21:00 – I.G.O. Vocal Jam Session – start moving to the back room, warming up and then jamming!

All night – please volunteer to help keep the space clean, we have no staff, just a network of people who help each other out…

*Open Greeting Zone – An area where you can feel free to walk up to any person or group, introduce yourself, be welcomed into the conversation.

**Improvisational Groove Orchestra (I.G.O.) – a fun way to experience authentic connection and community through exploring a commonly created sound space. (description & links to examples below)

IGO – Improvisational Groove Orchestra

We meet EVERY Thursday to listen, respond, observe and curiously play with the sounds our voices create together. Our objective is to tune into the common feeling, the resonance we are developing in the present moment.

Most of what we do is with our eyes closed. This allows everyone to be very focused on only the sound space without any other distractions.

At each session we usually have more beginners rather than experienced singers; all levels and voice types are welcome. Scott will explain a few basic and intuitively understandable concepts to make it super easy to dive in and be jamming out within the first 15 minutes!

It is a learning process in progress, each time balancing ourselves in volume and expression to merge into the group sound space, allowing everyone to hear and be heard, naturally developing our own musical styles.

The last times we explored further into the human sequencer game – a system where one person acts as a conductor, splitting the group into small parts, giving each small group unique impulses that than develop into one composition.

Feel most welcome to come and join us! (please be on time, there are important things to explain before beginning)

** pay as you feel, 3 – 5€ after the session

Baumhaus Tech Team :: Lighting, LED, Arduino, Programming & More
This will be our first open meeting of 2018 for people who are interested in collaborating with the Baumhaus Tech Team, more affectionately known as the “Nerd Division”.
 
We are in the process of developing several lighting installations that use a combination of incandescent and LED sources to create:
 
• “The Tree” – a VDI award winning sentient lighting sculpture
http://www.baumhausberlin.de/en/2017/01/10/sentient-light-sentient-light-wins-vdi-competition-mensch-und-technik/
• Orchid lamps – large scale organic designs
• Sandblasted Glass – the coolest LED lighting effect…
• LEDs in the Sophet (partial drop ceiling)
 
We are looking for people who would like to help with attaching LEDs, building controllers, developing lighting scenarios, programming scenarios and controllers.
 
All of these items will be designed to interface with a blue-tooth controller so that the lighting can react to the motion of people in the room.
 
19:00 Doors open
 
20:00 Introductions
 
20:20 Review of projects underway + Q & A

• up-cycling thin square wooden veggie boxes into curved roof building materials (several variations of removing staples)
• flattening thin metal tins (easy, safe and a good meditative action to go nice with conversation)
• adding more bent wood structure to the back room roof (standing on a ladder and putting small nails in)
• cutting curved shapes in thin wood to make roof shingles (using a band saw – easy to learn)
• setting up / cleaning up / cooking
 
Our sessions are focused on learning by doing and creating an open & authentic atmosphere in which to develop good relationships and collaborations. Having fun while getting good things done!
 
**All participants are required to have basic health insurance**

Flow – a special musical meditation series
Apr 25 @ 19:00 – 22:00
Flow - a special musical meditation series @ Das Baumhaus Berlin | Berlin | Berlin | Germany
Flow :: Special I.G.O. Sessions (last Wednesday of each month)
 
Flow is a state of being… an experience when you allow yourself to be 100% fully engaged in the present moment in a feedback loop between clarity and satisfaction. It is an undeniable sensation where things seem to be more effortless, pleasurable, in sync, and you can easily sense a connection with something greater than yourself; this is what we will create…:
 
• a connected and mindful meditation where it is possible to blissfully surf the cutting edge of the present moment together…
 
• a game where it’s possible to feel excited and calm in the same moment, and everyone can win as much as they like…
 
Scott Bolden, co-founder of Das Baumhaus Berlin will share some very easy, practical and effective methods developed during the last 3 years of facilitating the “Improvisational Groove Orchestra” (I.G.O.) improv vocal jam sessions. Within 20 minutes participants learn to use the common sound space to create resonance in the form of improvisational music where it is quite common to experience some real flow moments…
 
It is very easy to participate, no musical talent or training is required so anyone is welcome to join. Most of the session is done with eyes closed to avoid visual distractions and keep focus on the co-created sound space. During these sessions we will also have special guest instrumental musicians, poets, writers and beat-boxers etc… If you would like to be a special guest, please send us a message.
 
Important – if you have never done this in the Baumhaus before and can not make it in time for the intro and warm up, then please wait until the next session to join. It is very important to understand the methodology and warm up in the group before joining in!
 
Program:
 
19:00 – Doors open, meet and greet
 
19:45 – Introduction, warm up & first jams (planting seeds)
 
20:30 – Break
 
20:45 – Second round of jams (human sequencer game + other fun stuff)
 
21:30 – Closing & feedback
 
+ TBD – poets, singers, instrumentalists etc. send mail to info@baumhausberlin.de to reserve a guest spot.

IGO – Improvisational Groove Orchestra

We meet EVERY Thursday to listen, respond, observe and curiously play with the sounds our voices create together. Our objective is to tune into the common feeling, the resonance we are developing in the present moment.

Most of what we do is with our eyes closed. This allows everyone to be very focused on only the sound space without any other distractions.

At each session we usually have more beginners rather than experienced singers; all levels and voice types are welcome. Scott will explain a few basic and intuitively understandable concepts to make it super easy to dive in and be jamming out within the first 15 minutes!

It is a learning process in progress, each time balancing ourselves in volume and expression to merge into the group sound space, allowing everyone to hear and be heard, naturally developing our own musical styles.

The last times we explored further into the human sequencer game – a system where one person acts as a conductor, splitting the group into small parts, giving each small group unique impulses that than develop into one composition.

Feel most welcome to come and join us! (please be on time, there are important things to explain before beginning)

** pay as you feel, 3 – 5€ after the session

Poesie-Workshops mit Lyrik im Baumhaus
Apr 26 @ 19:00 – 21:00
Poesie-Workshops mit Lyrik im Baumhaus
WAS GEHT?
Das Dichten an sich ist noch kein Grund zur Einsamkeit. Wir laden euch ein, in unserer Workshop-Reihe verschiedene Formen der Dichtkunst wie z. B. Haiku, Sestine, Collage oder Erasure kennenzulernen und euch mit anderen Schreibbegeisterten auszutauschen.
Die Workshops sind so organisiert, dass ihr nach einem kurzen thematischen Input eure individuellen Schwerpunkte und euer Tempo selbst bestimmen könnt, ganz nach der Devise „alles kann, nichts muss“.

WHAT’S NEXT?
Am 26. April knöpfen wir uns das Haiku vor. Diese wohl kürzeste Gedichtform der Welt ist vor etwa 500 Jahren in Japan entstanden. Was kann sie uns heute, im Jahr 2018, noch bieten? Lässt sich diese Textart überhaupt wirklich ins Deutsche übertragen? Und muss es da eigentlich immer um Natur oder Jahreszeiten gehen? All dies wollen wir in dem Workshop herausfinden. Dabei werden wir neben dem klassischen Haiku auch kollektive Formen der Haiku-Dichtung ausprobieren.
Der Abend gestaltet sich nach euren Vorlieben. Ihr könnt vor Ort Texte schreiben oder aber bereits fertige Haikus mitbringen und sie mit uns diskutieren. Oder beides. Ganz wie ihr wollt.

WER IST DA?
Lyrik im Baumhaus ist ein unabhängiges Poet*innen-Kollektiv, das gemeinsam klassische und experimentelle Formen der poetischen Schreibkunst erkundet. Wir veranstalten Lesungen und Lyrik-Performances in verschiedenen Winkeln Berlins.

Eintritt: Kollekte

Flow – a special musical meditation series
May 30 @ 19:00 – 22:00
Flow - a special musical meditation series @ Das Baumhaus Berlin | Berlin | Berlin | Germany
Flow :: Special I.G.O. Sessions (last Wednesday of each month)
 
Flow is a state of being… an experience when you allow yourself to be 100% fully engaged in the present moment in a feedback loop between clarity and satisfaction. It is an undeniable sensation where things seem to be more effortless, pleasurable, in sync, and you can easily sense a connection with something greater than yourself; this is what we will create…:
 
• a connected and mindful meditation where it is possible to blissfully surf the cutting edge of the present moment together…
 
• a game where it’s possible to feel excited and calm in the same moment, and everyone can win as much as they like…
 
Scott Bolden, co-founder of Das Baumhaus Berlin will share some very easy, practical and effective methods developed during the last 3 years of facilitating the “Improvisational Groove Orchestra” (I.G.O.) improv vocal jam sessions. Within 20 minutes participants learn to use the common sound space to create resonance in the form of improvisational music where it is quite common to experience some real flow moments…
 
It is very easy to participate, no musical talent or training is required so anyone is welcome to join. Most of the session is done with eyes closed to avoid visual distractions and keep focus on the co-created sound space. During these sessions we will also have special guest instrumental musicians, poets, writers and beat-boxers etc… If you would like to be a special guest, please send us a message.
 
Important – if you have never done this in the Baumhaus before and can not make it in time for the intro and warm up, then please wait until the next session to join. It is very important to understand the methodology and warm up in the group before joining in!
 
Program:
 
19:00 – Doors open, meet and greet
 
19:45 – Introduction, warm up & first jams (planting seeds)
 
20:30 – Break
 
20:45 – Second round of jams (human sequencer game + other fun stuff)
 
21:30 – Closing & feedback
 
+ TBD – poets, singers, instrumentalists etc. send mail to info@baumhausberlin.de to reserve a guest spot.
