  • Summary

    A center for all the magical beings at Borderland that feel a bit lost and in need of a loving home. The Animal Adoption Agency is located in an illuminated, welcoming forest where all animals can feel safe and comfortable in their natural environment.

    Full description of concept

    The dream includes e.g.:
    - Beautiful structure design
    - Polyster tension fabric nets, ideal for projections, lighting and special effects
    -> Visual heaven: Trailblazing lights, neon art, glimmering disco balls etc etc etc
    - Smoke and haze for that morning mist in the glade feeling
    - Floor filled with rugs and covers. Bean bags and pillows everywhere
    - Gifting coffee to everyone throughout the afternoons
    - Disco vinyls from the food truck dj-booth
    - etc etc etc etc

    The more funding we get, the more awesome will it be :)

    Team and plan

    The Magical Animal Adoption Agency consists of a group of exceptionalistically passionate doers with expertise within, but not excluded to, fields such as:
    - Exulansis
    - Tree hugging
    - Space travels
    - Discoing
    - Visceral exploration
    - Baba Ganoush

    But also, which is convenient for creating this dream:
    - Burns
    - Solid mechanics and artistic architecture
    - Project management + strategics and tactical governance
    - Field emergency healthcare

    We are planning to arrive early to be able to have it ready for everyone to enjoy from day one.
    All fam will come down and help out building, everyone's free to join

    Moop plan (matter out of place)

    Located behind Lucy (The coffee truck/dj booth/love nest) is a recycle station. A special force of radiant rangers and friendly fairies will be sauntering through the forest by day, demoopifying the forest bed and making sure that all precious wildlife under the canopy are feeling healthy.

    (Boring version: Wooden structure could be burnt efficiently or otherwise saved for future use, all other material are reusable and easy to construct/deconstruct, recycle station for coffee cups and any other kinds off MOOP will also be provided)

    Budget overview

    SO - this is the dream budget. If we get less funding we can scale down in size and ambition, choose different materials and cut off on lightning, effects and gadgets etc. :) :(

    Structure material (Smooth wooden beams, polyster tension fabric nets and canvas, earth anchors, rope etc.)
    ≈ 30 000 DK
    Furnishings and onlay (Rugs, beanbags, pillows, , low sofas, lounge tables, plants and flowers etc.)
    ≈ 5 000 DK
    Lightning, decor and effects (Fluorescent strips, projectors, leds, lasers, disco balls, smoke machine etc.)
    ≈ 15 000 DK
    Total ≈ 50 000 DK

    All other costs are being covered by fam

    How can other borderlings cocreate with you?

    Come befriend the fauna within this magical sanctuary - find your spirit animal, create a cone-swan, hug the trees, run with the lions

    Also - anyone who wants to are off course more than welcome to help us build it :)
    Please give us a shout if interested in contributing in any other way as well, whether it be physical or transdimensional

    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.


    • Do you need electricity from the grid? Yes maybe 3-4 kW (≈ 10-12 amp). Depends on speakers and lightning etc

    • Will there be light? The magical forest will be nothing short of spectacular. It is art in lightform.

    • Will anything burn? The main bearing structure is of wood, why it could contribute to a nice last night burn if wanted :))))))

    • What is your audio footprint? Disco is the backbone of what constitutes the loving ambience at The Magical Animal Adoption Agency. We want a lax and loving ambience, playing - not lot loud - music during afternoons and evenings.
