  • Summary

    You are surrounded by dancing shadows, your spirit lies where the smoke of the hut raises, and in that circle of magic, a fairy is holding your hand.
    Allow yourself to be enchanted in an eclectic forest of rites, ceremonies, and workshops.

    Full description of concept

    Historically referring to a community of 13 witches, The Coven is a space dedicated to the exploration of [re]connection through rituals and ceremonies, and open to co-creation by anybody who wants to bring their energy into the project and space. We dream of a space where the physical and ethereal come together into a nurturing atmosphere, where we can practice using all our senses to communicate with the ancestral, universal and the non-seen.
    Here you can find your tribe and talk to your spirit animals; fly to the stars and dive into your horoscope; chant together with your ancestors; connect your taste buds to the spirit of chocolate; dance your weariness off in an ecstatic ceremony; craft a love potion for yourself and your lovers; share your deepest secrets in a circling workshop. You make the program! To make it complete, all the magic happens in a geodesic dome made out of broomsticks, donated by a retired witch from Romania.

    In the night-time, we envision The Coven as providing a cozy [re]connecting den for watching films and sharing favourite videos. Feel free to bring something you love on a memory stick, we’ll bring a projector and hopefully feel better than at the IMAX.

    About the group/Artist

    This project is brought together by Dalma and Ramona, and will be part of the [re]connect camp.

    Team and plan

    We want to revive and upgrade the already existing geodesic dome by building a cover that protects it from the elements. We will take care of installing the structure beforehand, and we’d like to open it with a co-creative ceremony where the cover will be drawn and coloured on.
    We already have a few ideas for workshops, and we dream of more people to initiate rituals and workshops.

    Moop plan (matter out of place)

    The dome and all of its components will get packed and used later on.
    We will have a moop station in the camp.

    Budget overview

    We want to buy the fabric for making the dome cover -4500
    Pillows, lights and other decorations - 700

    How can other borderlings cocreate with you?

      Details

    • Do you need electricity from the grid? Yes, for small fairy lights, a laptop and a projector.

    • Will there be light? Yes! Fairy lights everywhere!

    • Will anything burn? No.

    • What is your audio footprint? Mostly drums, voices, and movies in the night.

    • Forces of nature With the right cover (we're working on it right now) things should be nice and waterproof. We'll also anchor the dome so it won't be flown away by the wind.
