Meeting Place – call for proposals

The raumlabor team have designed a fantastic temporary public space which will be located in the centre of Midsummer Boulevard, opposite INTU and The Point. The idea for this space is to provide a place where people can come together, to sit, enjoy a coffee or cup of tea and take part in a free and varied programme. We have some fantastic content so far with some amazing speakers, performances and film screenings planned – but we felt that something is still missing….

We want offer up 10 slots for MK to programme – that means you!

We are interested in ideas and proposals that will showcase the fantastic creativity and ideas within the city. We would like this to be as open as possible and to embrace culture and creativity in all its forms – this might include a drawing class, cooking school, sewing club, book reading, open mic session, yoga class, tai-chi or debating session!

Crossroads open call – Winners announced

To complete A Festival of Creative Urban Living’s programme, raumlaborberlin launched the Crossroads Open Call to commission three public art projects which will accompany the Festival under the categories of ‘the built’, ‘the unbuilt’ and ‘the unbuildable’.

The response was breathtaking. Together the Jury looked at 101 proposals from visual artists, architects, designers, creative practices, musicians, urban planners, gardeners… So many professions, many interdisciplinary and international groups and collectives who submitted an array of craziest constructions, mobile units, programmes, processes and visions!

We are very happy to announce the three winning projects that will be commissioned as part of A Festival of Creative Urban Living.
