Crisis_mania is a project supported by Visegrad Fund and presents a collaboration between three very different groups from three countries. Col-me, Bratislava, Yoyo, Prague and Art Sector Foundation, Budapest.
These workshops are open for the public and we also invite interested people, to participate in one of the workshops. The workshop schedules will be out soon.

Four major issues are the starting point for thinking about the crisis and the organization of our own lives within it - "Food", "Housing", "Money" and "Travel". Each partner works out one of the topics and organizes a workshop on it, that participants from the other partners are attending. The workshop method is organized within the expertise of each organization - so one time it could be an artistic workshop, another time it could be a radio show, etc. The workshops will be held in English.

Yo-yo Prague will unearth mutually supportive connections between food and technics, which will also involve offbeat approaches to cooking.

Workshop on traveling in Budapest

On a way to BREAD and CIRCUSES. Crisis Edition

The Programme

This Workshop takes place from the 4th of December 2009 until the 6th of December 2009 in Tuzrakter, Budapest. Organized by Art Sector Foundation, Budapest

The system is experiencing its crisis that is affecting each and everyone nowadays. At such times people will start thinking about satisfying their basic needs like finding food and ensuring they have a place to live. In order to find food, people need to move, change their locations, they NEED TO TRAVEL. Usually, the people need to travel within their cities or towns.
After people find food (BREAD), they will need CIRCUSES, and for that they will need to travel outside their cities or towns. The reasons for TRAVELLING outside the cities/towns can be, of course, various, and it can be disputed whether TRAVELLING is a basic need of human being or a luxury.
