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

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:

Wedding Gespräche No. 10 «Was essen wir da eigentlich: Soja, Umami & das Klima»

Wedding Gespräche No. 10 «Was essen wir da eigentlich: Soja, Umami & das Klima»

Wedding Gespräche No. 10
«Was essen wir da eigentlich: Soja, Umami & das Klima»

Das Landwirtschaft und Lebensmittelkonsum, vor allem von tierischen Produkten, einen Einfluss auf den Prozess der Klimaerwärmung haben, wissen die meisten von uns, doch was sind die entscheidenden Punkte? Wie sieht ein Speiseplan aus, der das Klima nicht zerstört? Und – wonach schmeckt er? Diese Fragen stellen wir bei den Wedding Gesprächen No. 10.

• • • • • • •

14.00 INPUT: Der «Soja-Report» mit Katrin Wenz (BUND)
Einfach vorbeikommen – ohne Anmeldung :)

Soja spielt als Tierfutter eine wesentliche Rolle bei der Produktion von Fleisch und Milch und liefert pflanzliches Eiweiss als Alternative zu tierischen Produkten.

Welche Folgen hat der Sojaanbau? Was sind die globalen Zusammenhänge und was können wir tun? Der “Soja-Report” gibt Antworten. Nach dem Input bleibt Zeit für Austausch und eure Fragen.

• • • • • • •

16.00 mini-WORKSHOP: «Umami: ohne Tiere & natürlich»
Anmeldung an hallo [eeth] trimtabcollective.org

‘Fleischig’, ‘würzig’, ‘wohlschmeckend’: Umami oder die fünfte Geschmacksrichtung.

Es lässt uns die Tüte Chips leeren und erzeugt Appetit, der optimal meist zeitnah und unter Einsatz großer Mengen Kalorien befriedigt werden will. Eiweiss schmeckt umami und unser Gehirn weiss: das ist wichtig und weil drankommen oft schwierig ist (von Supermärkten und Türkischer Pizza an jeder Ecke hat es noch nichts mitbekommen) meldet es: sofort zuschlagen. Wir kennen Umami vor allem aus lange gereiftem Käse (Parmesan zum Beispiel), gebratenem Speck oder als künstliches Aroma. Du gute Nachricht: Umami geht auch ohne Tiere und Industriezeug! Wie erfahrt ihr im zweiten Teil der Wedding Gespräche. Mit Sonja (trim tab collective).

HalfTime / Halbzeit - Birthday Party with DJ/Live Performances @ Panke Culture

Change-Makers Unite!

Often, it can be a real challenge to dedicate your life to making the world a better and more sustainable place…  Sometimes it is good to pause, reflect on what we can do better, but also take time to celebrate our accomplishments.  In that same spirit, I would like to warmly invite all you dedicated change-makers and Baumhaus supporters to join me in reflecting and celebrating with a very special “HalfTime/Halbzeit” party on my birthday this year!

I figure that my life is at least half over, so now it is HalfTime! It could be HalfTime for any of us because no one really knows how much time we get… A good time to celebrate and reflect!

Our HalfTime Show features some of Berlin’s grooviest DJs, Dub Masters and Live Musicians playing an eclectic mix of funk, soul, afro-beat, rare groove, dub, breaks, hip hop, drum ‘n bass, techno, house and electro.

:: Doors @ 21:00, Show starts @ 22:00 ::

:: DJs & Dub Masters ::
Wyn Ti (SOWASVON), Scottie B (Baumhaus Berlin), Genys, Markus Thon

:: Live ::
Immaculate Contraption Session (improv musicians as dj)
Konstantin Athanasiadis (DUbsAx) – sax, Şafak Velioğlu Persian Tar, Rakesh Raj Nayak – tabla, Steven Maff (SOWASVON) – guitar synth, Mathieu Pe – trumpet & keyboard/synth, Daniel ‘Keyser’ Reichel – electro drums

:: Entry ::
4€ – 8€ ( pay as you feel ) – proceeds go toward event expenses, giving the artists something and supporting Baumhaus Berlin

:: Inspiration ::

What if life is a sport that we all play where winning means living a humane and satisfying life? What if we are all on the same team and winning means saving the world? What if it is HalfTime during “the big game”, the only one we ever get to play…?

How well we have played the first half of life so far? In which ways are we winning, losing or maybe even tied? What is our strategy for the second half? What does your HalfTime inspirational talk sound like that we need to hear before we go back out on the “field of life” to play the second half?

feel free to try out our concept catalyzer text animations below to help you come up with some good ideas for your own halftime speech…

Peace,
Scottie B (Scott Bolden)

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.

Flow – a special musical meditation series
May 29 @ 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…

«Transformation für Alle?!» Vielfalt & Teilhabe im Wandel zur Nachhaltigkeit
Jun 1 @ 13:00 – 17:30
«Transformation für Alle?!» Vielfalt & Teilhabe im Wandel zur Nachhaltigkeit

Wer kann am Wandel tatsächlich teilhaben und wie inklusiv wird er gedacht? Welche Effekte haben Barrieren und welches Potenzial wird verschenkt?

Diese und eure Fragen stellen wir bei den Wedding Gesprächen No. 11 und diskutieren sie gemeinsam mit Ulrike Bruckmann* und Gülcan Nitsch**. Nach zwei kurzen Inputs finden wir im Workshop heraus, worauf es ankommt, den Wandel zur Nachhaltigkeit offener zu gestalten.
• • • • • • • • • • • • • • •

13.00 | Ankommen & Suppe
13.30 | Expertinnen-Inputs: «Barrieren abbauen, Teilhabe ermöglichen, Vielfalt leben» (Ulrike Bruckmann) & «Für ökologischen Wandel Menschen interkulturell bewegen» (Input von Gülcan Nitsch)
14.45 | PAUSE
15.00 | Workshop «Den Wandel zur Nachhaltigkeit offener gestalten» (mit den Expertinnen)
17.30 | Ende & Ausklang

*Ulrike Bruckmann ist Inklusionsverfechterin und das gleichermaßen im Privaten wie im Beruf. Sie ist Mutter eines behinderten Kindes und arbeitet als Coach und Projektmanagerin für gelebte Inklusion. Mit einem Bein ist sie in ihrer Coachingpraxis auf der Suche nach dem guten Leben für Alle. Mit dem anderen Bein ist sie für das Projekt “Tuml-Buch. Ein Garten-Buch für Alle in Leichter Sprache” im Gemeinschaftsgarten himmelbeet unterwegs. Kopfdiamant Life-Coaching: https://bit.ly/2E2pasv | Tuml im himmelbeet: https://bit.ly/2vULyQj

**Gülcan Nitsch ist Kind türkischer Einwanderer und studierte Biologin. In ihrer Arbeit, z.B. bei Greenpeace und der BUNDjugend bemerkte sie, dass diese Organisationen eine große und wichtige Minderheit in Deutschland überhaupt nicht erreichten: Migranten. Um dies zu ändern, gründete sie mit Yeşil Çember (Jeschil Tschember, Türkisch für Grüner Kreis). Die Organisation sensibilisiert und aktiviert seit 10 Jahren türkischsprachige Menschen in Deutschland für Umweltthemen und verbreitet nachhaltige Lebensstile in der türkischen Kultur.
