Can we design experiences which spark in the individual a different state of consciousness? A moment of inspiration? A question about the way he lives?
Our purpose for this intervention** is helping people to deal with Change* in an amusing way.
In this MakerLab we want to challenge makers, artists, hackers, sociologists, economists, healing practitioners, … to propose actions, processes, performances or installations which bring people to a different state of mind.
By crossing boundaries between scientific experiment, design process & artistic intervention, we want to create a new way of celebrating which rather than just offering time to forget , it takes the guest into a shamanistic rituals of the 21st century.
We are looking for people that like to make this happen, people that are interested in creating a new generation of parties. We will start the discussion on Wednesday 15th of August at 19:00, come along and bring something to share. (Feel free to invite friends too)
*Change |CHānj|, verb: make or become different.
For this party we mean to help people to deal with the unknown; acknowledge conflicts; to let it go, to be inspired for options
**The event will take place during the People in Beta Festival (22nd of September)

This years MakerLab is about Human Rights.
Through the lab we will explore the opportunities and challenges of having a logo for Human Rights, and take the opportunity to do something about them.
Rather than waiting for others to change the world situation, we will instead create a collective action which have enough impact to disrupts the way things are.
As part of the activities we are proposing we are looking for 10 creatives from different disciplines that want to take part in this process and have a say during the DMY Berlin 2012.
Interested people will take part in a creative process focused around a challenge that we all identify with and try to design a way to get all the DMY visitors and exhibitors to make something about it.
We are making two calls:
- Thursday, 7th of June: How to magnify a proposed action?
- We invite participants to spend the day at DMY International Design Festival and find ways in which Human Rights are being threatened or empowered within the event.
- At 16:00, workshop participants will meet at the MakerLab to identify a challenge that we all identify with and we will have a Hold Up Session to solve this challenge determined by the participants!
- We will take the action and augmented through the 3 days of the event to try to get all DMY visitors and exhibitors to do something about that challenge.
- Friday, 8th of June: How can the human rights symbol be linked to meaningful action to reflect a “people’s” version of the UN Declaration for Human Rights?
In this 2 hr workshop, we will bring together multi-disciplinary participants as sensemakers to solve a challenge for a social enterprise. During the creativity workshop, we develop prototypes for solutions to solve the challenge. Learn more about Hold Ups from MakeSense founder Christian Vanizette here

After the conept and our aim was clearified, each team studied the process more in detail.
Stelle del quartier: To Do list
a cena: Story line and timeplan
First each group developed the story line for each project. What is happening, How we are going to interact with the public, How can the project be understood, …
Then we started prototyping the different process that people would interact with:
