Why not give yourself a New Year present?
Berlin is a vibrant metropole, a melting pot of young entrepreneurs and fresh ideas, funky design and inspiring inviting atmospheres. A perfect spot to be diving into, make you smile, think of old and new ideas, wonder about how funny & crazy some ideas can be – and simply enjoy the love for new, small and bigger beautiful things.
We invite you on an intense 2day safari into this urban jungle with its many creative spaces, cool exhibition venues, cosy cafés & restaurants, sparkling start-ups, simply beautiful magazine- and bookshops and just amazing corners. We have put together an inspiring journey for you to get a powerful bouquet of the colorful start-up flower power of this city.
This Urban Safari is taking place April 4 & 5, 2013 – and it’s a co-creative initiative of changels (Bern) and Lower East (Berlin and Copenhagen).
Helle Marietta and Jørgen Smidstrup have moved their design company, Lower East, from Copenhagen to Berlin by the end of 2011 and have been exploring the “arm, aber sexy“ city ever since. Matti Straub-Fischer, from changels, have joined the two for visits on several occasions and insisted on creating an opportunity for others to this diverse mix of creativity, design and playfulness. Together they arranged the first succesful Urban Safari in sunny and joyful days in November.
Here is the deal:
After the Urban Safari, you will receive a rich visual documentation on our days in Berlin.
Matti, Helle and Jørgen will be your scouts, hosts and the facilitators for the Urban Safari.
Together with Camillos Paladar, we will all put up a fantastic dinner on Thursday night. Camillos Paladar is a pop-up (mostly in Copenhagen, Berlin and Bern) restaurant with gorgeous food and remarkable wines. That alone is worth the journey. By chance, Mr. Camillo is similar to Mr. Smidstrup.
Are you ready for this adventure with us?
Here is the small-printed stuff:
Empty your head. Bring comfortable clothes and shoes, your notebook, some kind of a camera, some coloured pens, an umbrella (just in case) and your toothbrush.
And if you like, you can of course invite a dear friend or your partner to enjoy the rest of the weekend with you in this mind-boggling place.
Feel free to share this invitation to other potential safarists – and to contact us for any questions.
