Activities

The combination of old techniques with new technologies offers great potential to learn how to transform local cultures sustainably, thereby keeping traditions and skills at the heart.

The project is a collaborative process with different phases: Communication – Pre-Production – Prototyping – Development – Exhibition – Evaluation & Dissemination

JANUARY 2016

Communication: The Kick-Off Event in Berlin takes place in the framework of Public Art Lab’s ‘URBAN MEDIA KITCHEN – Cultural Projects in Europe and the Arab World‘ to announce the project and launch the open call for artists.

FEBRUARY – MARCH 2016

Pre-Production: The Pre-Production Period will mainly take place in Ramallah to involve and engage the community & craftsmen/-women and their needs.

APRIL 2016

Prototyping Lab: In Ramallah we will conjointly host the heart of the project. In a 4-days Prototyping Lab, taking place from 14.-19. April in the Community Art Centre in Ramallah, German and Palestinian artists/ designers/ technologists will develop together with local handicraftsmen/-women art projects to augment and rethink local heritage. Together they will develop three art projects with local handicraftsmen/-women to enhance the local heritage using technologies like i.e. 3D-Printing/Scanning, Knitting Machines, Lasercutting and many more.
