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

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 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
Jun 11 @ 9:13 – 10:13
Poesie-Workshops mit Lyrik im Baumhaus
(Only German)

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 14. Juni wird’s diskussionsfreudig: dieser Abend ist dem “politischen Schreiben” gewidmet.

Was ist überhaupt ein „politisches Gedicht“?
Welche Kraft wohnt einem politischen Gedicht inne?
Welche Methoden und Formen wurden bereits angewendet?
Welche neuen Möglichkeiten finden Autor*innen und Künstler*innen unserer heutigen Zeit, um in ihren Texten „politisch“ zu sein?

Wir stellen euch literarische Beispiele politischer Lyrik vor und wollen dann mit euch in Diskussion kommen.

Wie immer ist jeder herzlich eingeladen, eigene Gedichte mitzubringen!

Zudem wird es den Raum geben, mit all den Eindrücken aus der Diskussion vor Ort gleich selbst schriftstellerisch tätig zu werden.

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
Jun 27 @ 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.
 
Here are some recording samples from past sessions…

Program:
 
16:00 – 19:30 Volunteer to help cook
 
17:30 – Doors Open – Chill and open networking in the “Open Greeting Zone”
 
20:00 – All you can eat rescued bio food buffet by The Real Junk Food Project: Berlin (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!)

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 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

Film & Diskussion: Transition 2.0 – Stadt und Land im Wandel
Jul 12 @ 19:30 – 21:30
Film & Diskussion: Transition 2.0 - Stadt und Land im Wandel

Verschwindet die TransitionTown Bewegung?

Politiker_innen scheinen nur unzureichend auf die Herausforderungen sozialer und ökologischer Krisen zu reagieren. „Dann machen wir es eben selbst!“ lautet das Motto der zahlreichen Transition Town Initiativen, die sich gemeinschaftlich für eine relokalisierte Wirtschaft und ein post-fossiles Zeitalter einsetzen.
„Transition 2.0“ porträtiert Aktivist_innen, die sich in ihrer Nachbarschaft konkret für ökologische und soziale Veränderung engagieren. FairBindung zeigt den einstündigen Dokumentarfilm und diskutiert im Anschluss mit den WeddingWandlern dazu, ob Regionalgeld, städtischer Gemüseanbau und gemeinschaftliche Energieunternehmen Antworten auf knapper werdende Roh- und Treibstoffe bieten können.
Und: Wie es in Zeiten schwindenden Engagements mit der einst so florierenden Bewegung weitergehen kann – im Wedding und anderswo.

Flow – a special musical meditation series
Jul 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.
 
Here are some recording samples from past sessions…

Poesie-Workshops mit Lyrik im Baumhaus
Aug 2 @ 9:13 – 10:13
Poesie-Workshops mit Lyrik im Baumhaus
(Only German)

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 14. Juni wird’s diskussionsfreudig: dieser Abend ist dem “politischen Schreiben” gewidmet.

Was ist überhaupt ein „politisches Gedicht“?
Welche Kraft wohnt einem politischen Gedicht inne?
Welche Methoden und Formen wurden bereits angewendet?
Welche neuen Möglichkeiten finden Autor*innen und Künstler*innen unserer heutigen Zeit, um in ihren Texten „politisch“ zu sein?

Wir stellen euch literarische Beispiele politischer Lyrik vor und wollen dann mit euch in Diskussion kommen.

Wie immer ist jeder herzlich eingeladen, eigene Gedichte mitzubringen!

Zudem wird es den Raum geben, mit all den Eindrücken aus der Diskussion vor Ort gleich selbst schriftstellerisch tätig zu werden.

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

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.
 
Here are some recording samples from past sessions…

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…:
