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

Training for Actions with Extinction Rebellion
Mar 17 @ 11:00 – 18:00
Training for Actions with Extinction Rebellion
Training for Actions with Extinction Rebellion

We are heading towards massive ecological and social collapse. In April, Extinction Rebellion is organising our first world-wide week of rebellion, to make governments, media, and society finally acknowledge the scale of the crisis and to act accordingly. Time is running out. We have to change our course now!

Together, we are using actions of non-violent civil disobedience to ensure that the problem can no longer be ignored and to build the necessary political pressure for social change. Are you with us?

In this training, you can prepare yourself for civil disobedience action. For example, we will discuss how to organize affinity groups, how to act towards the police and members of the public, how to best prepare before an action and what to do afterwards, as well as possible legal consequences.

** 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)

I.G.O. Thursday Meditative Vocal Jam Sessions @ Baumhaus

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. We usually are more beginners than experienced singers, and that’s absolutely fine. 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.

All levels and voice types are welcome! Just make sure to be on time: Scott will explain a few basic and intuitively understandable concepts to make it super easy to dive in for everyone.

You can find tracks from previous I.G.O sessions here:

Der Fall KiK – Kleidung, Unternehmen und Menschenrechte

Der Textildiscounter KiK ließ in der Textilfabrik Ali Enterprises in Pakistan produzieren. Dort wurden 2012 durch einen Brand 258 Arbeiter*innen getötet und mindestens 32 verletzt. Vier Betroffene klagen seit vier Jahren vor dem Landgericht Dortmund auf Schadenersatz.

Flow – a special musical meditation series
Mar 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…

Flow – a special musical meditation series
Apr 24 @ 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…

I.G.O. Thursday Meditative Vocal Jam Sessions @ Baumhaus

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. We usually are more beginners than experienced singers, and that’s absolutely fine. 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.

All levels and voice types are welcome! Just make sure to be on time: Scott will explain a few basic and intuitively understandable concepts to make it super easy to dive in for everyone.

You can find tracks from previous I.G.O sessions here:
