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…

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

Lets start the day with a meditation!

We begin with collective chanting, in order to reach a universal resonance with each other. This is then followed by 30mins of guided and/or silent meditation. We want to explore different methodologies, teachings and ancient traditions. After the session, we can relax, enjoy a tea and prepare ourselves for a beautiful day ahead!

We ask for a 2-5€ donation upon entry to help us with the space rental (pay-as-you-feel).

Game Night + Special Improvisational Groove Orchestra Session
Jul 25 @ 19:00 – 22:00
Game Night + Special Improvisational Groove Orchestra Session
We have several requests for a game night so here it is! Bring your favorite games to share and play, maybe even make some up in our cozy Baumhaus candle lit salon.

Card games, board games, dice games, video games, physical games… anything is fair game! (we have a beamer)

PLUS a special IGO vocal jam session for those who can’t make it on Thursdays or just can’t get enough…

Program:

19:00 doors open, 2 – 5€ entrance
“Open Greeting Zone” all night long – feel free to introduce yourself to anyone or any group and expect the same in return…

19:30 let the games begin!

20:30 IGO session in the back room

22:00 feedback round

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

Some describe it as a game where everyone can win as much as they want. Some describe it as a deeply engaging and active connective meditation. Some say it is like tripping out as a group. Some say it’s just plain fun… all are correct.

Most of what we do is with our eyes closed. This allows everyone to be very focussed 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, 2 – 5€ after the session

Active Art Salon Nr. 7 & Maker Space with Repair Cafe
Aug 1 @ 19:00 – 23:00
Active Art Salon Nr. 7 & Maker Space with Repair Cafe @ Das Baumhaus Berlin | Berlin | Berlin | Germany

An Active Art Salon is like a playground for adults where participants provoke and inspire each other in thoughtful and creative ways, improvisationally or otherwise…

—–

This will be an informal salon-style event. Each hour, a provocateur will have 2-5 minutes to present an interesting concept, idea, performance or expression as catalytic ‘food for thought’ for everyone else. This could be in the form of spoken word, sound, dance, video or whatever else you’d like.

After each provocation there will be a short Q & A discussion. Then, attendees, artists and creators are invited to utilize the input of the moment and transform the provocateur’s input into their chosen media (drawing, painting, writing, sculpting, conversation or just hanging out.)

Bring any materials you’ll need to enable your own creative exploration. Parts of the physical room will be your canvas. You can draw, paint, collage or hang things on designated walls and structures.

19:00 –  Arrival, Meet & Greet
20:00 – Active Art Salon event
22:30 – Social hang out soirée – we’ll have some drinks and hang out in the space

All night – Maker space and Repair Cafe: Baumhaus Nerd Division will be working on the main tree sentient lighting project. Bring your own project to work on or join in ours!

*If you would like to be a provocateur, you can either let us know in advance or on the night. The 3 provocateurs will be announced the day of the event.

Listen to Hear :: Woob
Aug 2 @ 19:00 – 22:00
Listen to Hear :: Woob @ Das Baumhaus Berlin | Berlin | Berlin | Germany
The concept is simple, we come together with the express purpose of listening to audio recordings or live performances with the objective of spending focused time tuning into the sound space in all aspects.
 
After a focused listening session we engage in conversation and general lounging…
 
This week we shall listen to some work by the artist named “Woob”, aka Paul Frankland who produced 2 epic masterpieces in the late 1990’s that still hold their own in today’s sample driven ambient world electronic music scene.
 
Our focus will be on on an album titled “Woob 4495”, which to this day, collectors are willing to pay hundreds of euro for the original plastic. We shall enjoy this and perhaps even “Woob 1194”, another fine work of art.

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

(you must have health insurance to be covered by ours if you want to work with tools)

 


2) Organizing the Emergent Berlin Festival & Program – presentations, workshops, discussions, games, pitches, art & design, celebrations, salons, films & music, movement & other great ideas we come up with!
 

• This year’s main theme – “Convergence” – coming together with the goal of developing active collaborations that produce more practical sustainable impact in Berlin and beyond.

2017 Open Call for Participation ::  EN & DE

 
We will explore and experience how can we efficiently activate more of Berlin’s human potential to bring more balance into our worlds personally, ecologically, aesthetically, culturally, economically and socially (p.e.a.c.e.s.).

Jul 25 @ 19:00 – 22:00
Game Night + Special Improvisational Groove Orchestra Session

PLUS a special IGO vocal jam session for those who can’t make it on Thursdays or just can’t get enough…

Program:

19:00 doors open, 2 – 5€ entrance
“Open Greeting Zone” all night long – feel free to introduce yourself to anyone or any group and expect the same in return…

19:30 let the games begin!

20:30 IGO session in the back room

22:00 feedback round

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

Some describe it as a game where everyone can win as much as they want. Some describe it as a deeply engaging and active connective meditation. Some say it is like tripping out as a group. Some say it’s just plain fun… all are correct.

Most of what we do is with our eyes closed. This allows everyone to be very focussed 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)
