you are welcome to come and visit, see the work we are producing, watch films on the theme (we have lots for you to see), discuss and plan, bring your work for the archive (doesnt have to be about Experiments in Living), think about how you want to live differently, record your own ideas and realities….

Visits: you’re welcome to join us, just let us know in advance if you can.

Cafe: hang out, read, chat, eat – different evenings have different themes: Friday you are invited to just come and share food with us; Sunday is Bring and Share – so bring something with you; and Monday is Eat what you can for free – we’ll cook using things we can find for free!

Call Out For Films (in collaboration with LaD.I.Y.fest Berlin) – ‘experiments in living’: we are interested in all kinds of realities, histories, utopias and imaginings, in communities and groups, homes and buildings, networks and connections….

Send us your examples, ideas, drawings, research, films, photos…
….for this website
