The workshop was part of “Casa Mia”, a project of S27 international youth, arts and culture centre and hosted by AWO Refugium in Berlin-Lichtenberg.
Two weeks workshop during the summer holiday with the children living in a housing for new-comers and refugees. We placed in the backside of a Plattenbau (a concrete prefabricated building from the DDR time) a self-constructed mobile structure to host the activities of the workshop CASA MIA. Children get invited to build up models of an imaginary city in scale 1:10 using recycled material. Similar to a market stand, the work station was daily apprenticed and than dismantled in the evening. A yellow Tent, working tables, glue guns, wood and many left-overs materials to get upcycled. Our working station became soon a meeting point / a place of interactions between newcomers and others inhabitants of the neighborhood.
