Friends of music! It's time: "Music for human rights" goes into the next round.

Anyone who has been there in the last few years knows what that means! Love for music meets colourful diversity. Heart warmth meets strained nerves from hours of rehearsals in the stuffy cellar hole. Strangers become like-minded and like-minded friends.

But what do you actually do at "Musik for human rights"?
Very simple: 42 people from 6 countries come together and found three project bands. Professional musicians are mixed with amateurs and write, compose and study together 2 songs, which are then performed to the final concert, on a stage. Participants are Bosnia and Herzegovina, Germany, Israel, Italy, Portugal and Serbia.
Each exchange also has a specific theme under which the bands orient themselves. This time it is about human rights and your "wish - Europe". What should the world look like in which we want to live? What challenges do we have to struggle with now and in the future and how can our contribution to a peaceful coexistence look like?
So if you want to get to know new people, countries and cultures and if the stage air appeals to you, then contact us at Info@roter-baum-berlin.de and write us a short mail where, when and why you want to participate (multiple registration possible).
We're looking forward to seeing you!

Nature in Frame

Dates: 28.10. - 4.11. 
Participant fee: 0 Euro
Number of participants Red tree: 6
Project language: English

During the 9 project days we will search for nature in the big city. In smaller groups, we will focus on the topics environment and traffic, environment and water, landscape, pollution and garbage as well as food and agriculture. Together you go on a photo safari and create an exhibition. Each photographer selects and exhibits one picture from his or her home country and one taken during the project.

But it is also part of a youth exchange that we get to know each other, work together, discuss and celebrate. So you do not only get to know new people, but also their countries.

The project will be implemented in the Kienbergpark Environmental Education Centre. If you want to take part, write an email to info@roter-baum-berlin.de. We will get back to you as soon as possible.

The Youth Exchange "Mellow Project for Newcomers of International Youth Work" will take place from 3 to 13 August 2018 in Berlin. It brings together three partners who work with young people in urban youth culture: Germany, Belgium and Serbia.

Above all young people are addressed who have no experience with intercultural learning and intercultural cooperation.

The activities will delight all participants, as they will have the opportunity to get to know the youth culture in other participating countries and, in particular, introduce us as a host city. Since the project will take place in the international youth center Anna Landsberger and in the Mellowpark, there are plenty of opportunities for doing this project in Berlin, which of course invites you to conquer the urban urban culture.

Three working groups are divided during the exchange. The "rolling team" will teach each other nice moves and train a little show. The "Music crew" will prepare and rehearse a few songs to your liking. The "art crew" creates decorations with all sorts of styles such as graffiti and woodwork. All results can be presented at the "Mellow Jam", a Urban Art Festival.

In 2015 and 2016 we carried out the project "exploring roots and ways of cultural diversity in music". In 2017 we started the series "music for human rights", which will be continued this year. Both projects have brought the participants closer to the cultural diversity of the participating countries and brought great music to the visitors of the final concerts. Participants and project managers were enthusiastic about how the project worked for everyone.

Precisely for this reason, we continue the project. And we get a new partner in the team.

The partners have agreed that we would like to run them again in each country of the partners involved. In doing so, we will each take out one aspect of the subject area, cultural and religious diversity, migration and closely related human rights and make it the focus of a youth exchange. Initially, two youth exchanges were approved.

The Youth Exchange in Berlin will focus on Europe. One year before the European elections, nationalism gains new strength in Europe. Is this the end of Europe? Or how should our Europe look like? We look forward to the messages you bring to the bands.

In August we will participate in the FreeDom Art Fest in Pancevo again. The freedom of the art is a high good, which is quickly endangered. But how far is it allowed to go? The legendary days in Pancevo will provide plenty of room for discussion, music and parties for those who already know it.

In autumn we hope to unsettle the concert hall of Comala in Turin and of course to give a beach concert in Portugal. Registrations are now possible
