How can we manage to engage in an increasingly stressful world without falling into burnout?

Self-Care and Community Care is the thematic field on which 40 young artists from 6 countries have been working together since November 2. In internationally mixed creation groups they develop thematic short films, music clips and experimental media works: Within two weeks on the North Sea island Baltrum, in a self-catering house on the edge of a nature reserve, where the whole group lives, cooks, sleeps, eats, discusses and produces together.

We would like to present the artistic results to you on November 16 in the iJuLa room in Cologne Zollstock. The number of places is very limited; therefore please register in advance by e-mail, please be sure to include the info if you want to come at 17:00 or at 19:00:
