    Full description of concept

    A light-weight dome that I will both build and tear down together with all the kids in KidsVille. It will be filled with white fabric creating a white forest that turns colorful at night with 2 strong RGB lights.

    About the group/Artist

    Carl, a.k.a. Catalyst. was part of creating thetr.ee at Borderland 2014. Have built Strawbees MEGA domes before. Lot's of fun and super easy. Also the founder of Kids Hack Day, a global nonprofit that empowers kids to be creative with technology.

    Team and plan

    It's just me. I already have the dome but need money to buy the light as well as used fabric in case I can't source that elsewhere. I also need some money to buy old carpets to be used as the dome's floor.

    Moop plan (matter out of place)

    No moop. We will just use fabric for decoration and a Strawbees Mega dome doesn't generate any moop.

    How can other borderlings cocreate with you?

    They can bring old fabric to rip apart into strips and hang in the dome! Or if anyone is into lights then they're more than welcome to join the project to help light up the dome in cool ways. Remember that there will be kids messing about so vulnerable electronics is not recommended.

    What is this?

    Congratulations! You've stumbled upon something special. Borderland is a participatory festival that takes place in Boesdal, Denmark. It's a fully participatory event where everything is created by the participants themselves, with out any spectators.
