Be Loud – Democracy Now
I had the opportunity to give a workshop with youngsters and young adults according possibilities and disadvantages of the Kommunalwahl in Düsseldorf, Germany. Together as an participating approach we set up a digital and poster campaign, printed protest t-shirts, had discussions with professionals from the field and learned so much from each other. The workshop was suppored by the Ministerium für Kultur und Wissenschaft NRW, LAG Soziokultur NRW, Zakk Düsseldorf, Caritas Düsseldorf und dem Projekt Düsseldorfer Falken.
Don't believe the hype Workshop
Together with Filmwerkstatt Düsseldorf & Zakk Düsseldorf and the illustrator Max Fiedler we created a workshop about critical consuming for kids in the age from 6 to 18 years. In times of overpriced products and limited editions everywhere we came up with an own (fictional) brand called "Selfness" using all those marketing tools the fashion industry uses to create a buzz around it.
We created a collection, the prints where drawings by the kids; Shot a lookbook, with the kids as models; Photographed the products, motives printed on 2nd hand cloth from the kids wardrobe; Set up a Online Shop, where everything was sold out from the beginning; Bought followers and likes, to look bigger online; Informed local newspapers, who wrote about it; Made posters and a digital campaign promoting the store opening.
