RECYCLE YOUR CITY- REMAP CREATIVITY looking for participants
exchange 18th to the 27th of August in Leipzig

What is a city and who lives there. This Exchange will be about exploring the city, how it is constructed and how we use the city to move, express ourseleves and interact.
The exchange will consist of groups from 6 countries one of them being Scotland, 70% of the travel costs will be reimburst and food and accommodation in Leipzig will be for free. So all you need to pay is 30% of the travel cost.
If you are a creative person and what to meet likeminded people and do workshops and events for 10 days in Leipzig, have a look at this:

So what is this exchange about?
Discovering different communities – what kind of people, why are they a community etc
Active citizenship
Rural and urban ways of living and the internet
Living in different places, countries
Democracy, democratisation and grassroots democracy
Discrimination,Racism, Sexism, Gender
Cost of living in cities: rent, squatting etc

Examples of workshops that might take place:
Prejudice workshop – one’s own and others’ prejudice
Developing unfair trade signs, information packages, stickers – afterwards spreading action
Stickers with the name of the thing you stick the sticker on – in different languages
Groups we live in workshop
Getting to know each other workshops

Movement and Architecture – developing actions
Discussions and actions regarding the private and the public spaces – playing with in and out
Contact improvisation – workshop and contact improvisation from inside (flats and other
indoor places) over the hallway and out (onto the streets) in groups and meeting on the same
spot – meeting points
Workshop and discussion about different town dynamics
Alternative energy sources – big and small ones
Tram poetry action - unexpected poetry on public transport
Placing windmills (paper, metal…) on the balconies of a street
Couch surfers project – concerts, workshops, dinners, readings, movie night, sleeping over at
their places – like a little festival
Guerrilla Gardening
Upcycling and recycling workshops
Exploring Leipzig – offering tours on the free day and making a list of interesting places,
museums, parks, clubs and bars and festivals happening
A small couchsurfing festival will be organized

There will also be a thing called OPEN SPACE when you, the participants, get to start your own projects to do.
