Dreamseeds – Feel into the future through creative expression
In this workshop we will use a combination of reflective, meditative and creative techniques to feel into these questions and tap into the subtle Dreamscapes of our subconscious in order to create a “Dreamseed” drawing. This piece of art will hold within it the potent Intentions and answers explored through a number of exercises designed to awaken more of our inspiration, Imagination and intuition.
I invite you to gently step into your mytho-Poetic Dreamscapes and discover the wisdom and beauty waiting to be seen, heard and expressed as we collectively explore more creative solutions to the most pressing problems.
* Please have a piece of paper and drawing materials handy for the workshop (a pen or pencil is enough) If you want to bring color pencils and pastels please do. No previous experience with mediation or art is required to attend, everything has been designed to be accessible to all. *

Trees as infrastructure deep dive
Using the lens of Trees as Infrastructure, we will imagine and identify the most controversial topics. For example – what happens when this topic becomes (inevitably) political? What happens if the media use it as a ’greenwashed feel good piece’ without thoroughly discussing the full breadth of the story? How does this apply to marginalized communities?
In the workshops, participants will develop, refine, demonstrate, prototype, and launch or initiate transformative experiments. All participants are welcome. Leaders from city and regional governments will also be in attendance, alongside artists, business and other thought leaders. As the Deep Dive session on Day 2 will build on context from Day 1, either of the sessions on Thursday are a pre-requisite for Friday’s session.
EIT Climate-KIC is the EU’s climate innovation agency, working to accelerate the transition to a zero-carbon and resilient world by enabling systems transformation.

The Transcultural Republic of Nodes
To get started we need Ideas, knowledge, inspiration! What would a Constitution for the 2020s look like? How do we set up a self-financed UBI? How can we harness the power of Blockchain/Aragon? How can we create a new social code that proclaims not freedom from harm, but rather the freedom to self actualize? Imagine an international network of physical open spaces – Nodes – that are based on: shared values, self-financed UBI and an internal, privacy-conscious social network. Its goals would be:
Cohabiting peacefully / adverting crisis
Creating spaces to navigate and inspire change
Providing mutual support
Using advancing technologies in communications, production, agriculture and energy
Raphael Thelen lives and works on the fault lines of our global society, where our conflicts and aspirations are thrown into their sharpest relief, where the boundaries between personal and political blurr. He experienced the 2011 Liberation struggle of the people in the Middle East, accompanied by Refugees crossing the Balkans, wrote about the crumbling Dreams of today’s Eastern Germany. His writing has appeared in all major German Magazines. Currently he is finishing his second book. He writes not only as a Spectator, but as someone who hopes to change the conditions he finds.
Theresa Leisgang lives her life on the fine line where local practices and global structures meet. She explores the connections between transculturality and climate crisis, between agriculture and biodiversity-loss, between indiginous knowledge and imperialism.Whether she researches how oil companies exploit the people of the Amazon, works on board of civil rescue ships in the Mediterranean or develops PR strategies for public figures like Carola Rackete – to her all these Missions are sides of the same quest: a good life for all on our shared planet.
Raphael and Theresa are collaborating on a project called Pulse Of The Earth. They have traveled through Southern Africa, Europe and towards the Arctic Circle to examine how communities deal with the impact of the climate crisis. During their meetings with social-entrepreneurs, feminists, psychonauts, shamans, thinkers, politicians and activists, while living in community houses, squatted forests and on spiritual gatherings, they learnt one thing time and again: community is not only making us more resilient, it is also the solution to many of our most problems.

By the Code of Soil
The session includes a screening of the work By the Code of Soil followed by a discussion of the project by artists and guests. The work mixes various dynamic data from soil sensors, combined with more Static data on soil texture and season, into a system of visual noise.
“By the Code of Soil is about handing over power to the land – to soil – and depicting it as a first and foremost living organism; not as a resource whose capacity must be maximized for our own benefits. Soil with all its Myriad of processes happening there all the time is like a matrix of the computer – an Invisible force and organizational structure binding all components of the Biosphere together. In times of uncertainties and transitions we need to pay attention to what is Invisible, possibly more than to what is in front of us. ” – Kasia Molga.
Kasia Molga is a designer, artist, creative technologist and environmentalist in heart. She calls herself a “design fusionist”. She reimagines our relationship with nature, while questioning our technologically mediated perception of the environment – and the technology itself. Kasia’s work is part of a Collaboration between S + T + ARTS (Science, Technology & the Arts), an initiative of the European Commission launched under the Horizon 2020 research and innovation program and Untitled. STARTS’s purpose is to support Collaborations between artists, Scientists, engineers and researchers to develop more creative, inclusive, and sustainable technologies.
Scanner (British artist Robin Rimbaud) traverses the experimental terrain between sound and space connecting a bewilderingly diverse array of genres.
