On Monday something beautiful of Katrin Dinges. During our stay in Stechlin she did some lyrical experiments. The following text is one of the results, a translation of the german poem:
Do you know where we are?
In the fairytale Land of Dreams,
of blue cherries, pink trees,
Where things change like the Wind,
Like the fantasy that thinks like a child,
The ideas are not foams,
They create new, colourful spaces,
They open and close quickly.
A door that consists of loud wind,
From Air snake horses bridles,
As much as I dream,
Thoughts that are unreal elsewhere.
Are you a business economist and do you have experience in controlling? Are you looking for a job with meaning? Then we’re searching for you to complete our <Platz da!> team. We train people with different “disabilities” to guides and workshop leaders in museums. Their work helps museums that want to open up to visitors with “disabilities” by reducing barriers in guided tours and workshops and thus becoming more accessible and more important (again) for many people. More information and contact: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Yesterday Steffi and Silja did some teamwork: with a tandem bike they drove through Berlin. Thanks to Artemisia and NoisyVision for this great inclusive tandem tour! We are looking forward to collaboration.
Silja Korn describes how she perceived the Pride parade as a blind person:
The <Platz da!> team danced wildly at the Pride Parade. I felt incredibly comfortable and in good hands among the people. Everyone paid attention to the other. The organizers had even thought of a resting-room for those who needed a break. On <Platz da!> balloons we wrote what’s still not working in society and let them rise to the sky.
Currently we travel a lot and talk to potential cooperation partners. This week we met for example Julia Marmulla; you may be curious what we plan together. We were also in Erfurt at the conference “The Inclusive Museum”. Did you know that there are robots that allow people to visit a museum that could not come otherwise? Or that most touchable models of cities are designed more for sighted than for blind people?
