    (Not only) for introverts with a need to connect!

    Kindly hosted by the Borderland Post-Office

    Full description of yer concept

    Do you find circling a bit too radical for your own comfort zone but still have something you'd like to share and discuss? Do you want to share your borderland experiences in the form of a Jane Austen letter novel? Do you want to discuss philosophy or your newest mathematical theories in a cultivated manner? Do you want to go back to the origins of sexting with juicy perfumed letters?
    ✒ In any case: you need a Secret Pen-Pal!

    The Secret Pen-Pal (kindly hosted by the Borderland Post-Office) connects you with one or several random strangers to start a correspondence by letter. There you can discuss all you darkest fantasies, deepest thoughts, or ludicrous rants about your camp mates. Or share nude-drawings. Or cookies. Or declare how awesome wolves are.

    How it works:
    * post "search for pen-pal" notes at a message board at the post office, using a nickname. State what kind of pen-pal you are looking for.
    * people looking for a pen-pal then can answer those notes using a pigeon-hole shelf in the post-office to post their reply-letters
    * check the pigeon hole with your nickname/first letter/chiffre to see if you've got mail
    * get excited - read - enjoy - answer

    * It is up to you to decide at some point whether you would like to reveal your identity and meet with your pen-pal or stay a mystery forever 🙂

    Moop plan (matter out of place)

    Pidgeon-holes & message board (with pins) will be taken back home.
    All left letters & messages will be brought back home.

    Participants are responsible for cherishing, framing or disposing of received letters themselves.

    Budget
    Description Amount (DKK)
    Envelopes, Paper & Pens 200
    Message board (incl. pins & message slips) 200
    Pidgeon-hole shelf 300
    How can other Borderlings co-create with you?

    Become a secret Pen-Pal, write often and extensively!

    • Do you need electricity from the grid? How much in Watts? Nope

    • Will there be light? The light of the post office will benevolently illuminate the pigeon holes & message board (I hope)

    • Will anything BURN? Nope

    • What is your audio footprint? Cheers of excitement when a new letter has arrived - Sighs of disappointment if not.
