Transformaton Festival in Berlin

Societal change with great impact in history was often born in a few pioneer's heads in a small living room or private kitchen. Sometimes in elegant salons accompanied by heavy clouds of cigar smoke, sometimes in the cluttered space of an artist's studio with a group of intellectuals gathered around a kitchen table spending the night in discussions, poetry recitation and spontaneous musical interludes. All kind of resistance movements happened in private homes.
It seems to us that especially for bold, courageous transformations, for disruptive societal innovation the intimacy of a private space is a most valuable ingredient.

We spent a day with pioneering heads and souls right in some of Berlin’s private living rooms. Three tracks of workshops, interactive talks, experimental sessions and artistic happenings gave us inspiration and  hands on support for our creative challenges.

Testimonials

Transformation fängt bei einem selbst an - und bei den Veranstaltungsformaten, mit und in denen wir uns begegnen. Das Transformation Festival geht da neue Wege, die auf alte Pfade führen: in privaten Wohnzimmern beherbergt zu werden für kurze, spannende Workshops, das ist eine schlichte und ergreifende Idee. Die Lernen und Kennenlernen ermöglicht. Mehr davon!
Miriam

Playful, joyful, helpful Friends for ever!
