There are as much realities as tactics to modify them. Complaining, starting revolutions… Some of these ways of demands have been losing power little by little, and have been absorbed for the system itself, becoming something expected, controlled, assumed and boring. Creative Activism seeks to break barriers, its actions spring from the spontaneity, the unexpected, the anonymous… From the imagination. And precisely this is one of the most powerful features we believe in. Imagination as a tool for creating alternatives, for building up new worlds within the one we know. We want to come up with our own tactics, tools and communication channels in order to foster our own alternatives.
What does it mean Creative Activism?
It is giving life for 3 days to an old abandoned monastery, turning it into a place for alternative cultural and artistic exchange. It is to open up a space that used to have one only use, share it and give it a second chance to have a new life, a new story and identity.
How to transform an abandoned monastery in open,free and creative space. This weekend Brugge is full of 40 artist from everywhere, they are invited to participate at the event organized by Donkey Collective in collaboration with the french collective Prohibited.
Mastamagazine will be there¡¡ And we will collaborate with a unformal presentation and workshops this Saturday,the 8th of December at 16:00.
