As we mentioned recently on the blog, our friends at Slow Travel Berlin are organising a very special event for the 22nd April 2012, when they will take over Kreuzberg’s 100–year-old covered market hall Markhalle IX for a day of local creativity, culture and cuisine. The morning will be given over to a selection of free tours that explore the city via a range of interesting themes, including literature, street art, architecture, history and running. From midday, the Markthalle will officially open until 6pm and host a range of activities, workshops and entertainment, including:
• Locavore Food Market with: Soluna, Goldhahn & Sampson, Bitter’velt, Stadtschoenheit, Dickes Bee, B Alive (Raw Food), Suff Weinladen, The Dairy, Culinary Misfits, Sunday Burgers, Prinzessinnengarten…
• Literary Lounge with: SANDjournal, Dialogue Books, Mondo Azul and Shakespeare & Sons (tea and snacks supplied by Hudson’s Café of Kreuzberg), plus various readings and performances
• Workshops with: Urban Sketching Berlin, Mother Drucker (Screen Printing), Nadelwald (Sewing), Stuart Holt (Film Maker), Didges Brew (Didgeridoo).
• Plus: Children’s entertainment with Rotonda Theatro, Live Cartoon Drawing with Caffeinated Toothpaste, DJs & Live Music (Candice Gordon, Berlin Pop Choir, Dorothy Of The Day), Crafts Stall, Swishing (clothes swapping) Stall, Free Ideas from Art Connect Berlin – and more surprises on the day…
Entrance to the event and all workshops are free, though this is a fundraiser event so all donations are welcome.
You can find out more information on the event facebook page, and as always, if you are looking for something to do in Berlin, you should check out the articles and listings on the main website. Very informative.
