  • Summary

    We want to create a calm and safe space where you feel comfortable sharing what you feel, what you need, what you have been through or just anything you want. We will then give you our deepest, warmest compassion.

    Full description of concept

    We believe that compassion and empathy are basic human needs that we all share.
    Whether you have loads of experience in giving or reserving compassion or if you barely have heard the term before, we believe that to take some of your valuable time and spend it whit us in the Compassion Corner will be time well spent.

    We who co-create this fabulous Corner have all felt feelings like frustration, anger or maybe even depression when our need for compassion isn't meet, when we need understanding but all we get is solutions, evaluations or diagnoses.

    Whit this Corner we want to spread the power of Compassion, Empathy, Self compassion and Self empathy to the people of Boarderland!

    About the group/Artist

    Whit a passion for compassion we will hold space for everyone in need.

    Team and plan

    Alexander: Deeply inspired by Marshal Rosenburg and Mellisa Abecassis - NVC. Working on my way of communicating and giving compassion every day!

    We will buy or borrow a tent. We will whit experience decorate it and make it super cozy and friendly. We want to create a beautiful atmosphere full of giving and compassion and free from judgments and diagnoses.

    For decorations and soft sitting and lying areas we will bring or borrow pillows, blankets and fabrics. We might also buy some stuff second hand.
    For cozy lighting we will bring, build or burrow nice lamps and led lights.

    When everything is set up we will give our visitors all the compassion they need.

    Moop plan (matter out of place)

    We wont produce any trash.

    Budget overview

    If we can't find a tent to burrow we will buy one for 1000 - 1500 dkk.
    We want to make a sign for the tent. We need a board and paint, estimated price: 200 - 300 dkk.
    Extra stuff like rope and cable ties for building and decorating the space. 100 - 200 dkk.
