Participation to the Karneval der Kulturen 2016
On May 15th, the Museum of Colours, along with its partner the Karakuli circus, will take part in the great parade of the Carnival of Cultures, a huge colourful event, which is typical of Berlin and attracts a crowd of over one million people every year. The circus performances paired with optical effects and colourful illusions will inspire creativity and imagination!
We are going to collaborate with 3 amazing street artists!
We are especially delighted to announce that each of the street artists C215, Jimmy C and TONA have agreed to lend us a work of art, which will represent the Berliner street art in the exhibition! These three internationally-known artists contribute to the quality requirement in our exhibition. Other confirmations will come soon...
Our first exhibits!
Our project presentation file has already proven effective. We’ve had the chance to develop several partnerships reflecting the diversity within our exhibition. We will build containers for urban and mobile gardening together with the Prinzessinnengarten; the association Berliner Unterwelten (the subterranean Berlin) will lend us several pictures of bright underground signage elements; the BSR (the Berlin cleaning company) will lend us a typical orange trash can.
The Museum of Colours is on YouTube
The Museum of Colours has its own YouTube channel, where you can already watch several presentation videos. We will keep working on uploading more! In this way, we hope to reach a broader audience. Please feel free to share!
Our new leaflet is available online!
We are happy to announce that our leaflet about our exhibition "The Colours of Berlin" is available online here. Take a look at it to know everything about it.
The Colours of Berlin: our first exhibits
Our project presentation file has already proven efficient, since we had the chance to develop several partnerships with the Prinzessinengarten (urban and mobile gardening), with the association Berliner Unterwelten (the subterranean Berlin), and BSR (the cleaning company from Berlin). Thus, we can start to design our exhibition, which will include plants in different bins and recycling materials, pictures of the underground Berlin and a typical orange trash can. We are also delighted that the Street Artists C215 and Jimmy C accepted to lend us works of art for the exhibition!
Project presentation at Lust bar
On the 18th of February, we did a project presentation at the Lust Bar, in Berlin. We talked about our Museum of Colours presentation and our project about The Colours of Berlin. Then, we tasted the wonderful wines from "D-Gusto", on the music of Bee Lincolm and Nakosta Yoris. We had a really good time and we appreciated your suggestions and ideas. Thanks to you all!
We have two new interns!
Good news! During the beginning of this year, we are welcoming two new interns. Hélène is from France and will work on searching for new partnerships. Alban, from Belgium, is going to be our new communication manager. Good cooperation in prospect.
Our leaflet is ready to send !
It took time but our new leaflet about The Colours of Berlin is ready to send. With it, we would like to have new partnerships! We are very happy to prove the relevance of our project about the Colours of Berlin and to say more about it. Ask us to send it to you! Available in English and German.
Meeting with the Kiwanis Berlin-Frohnau
The Club Kiwanis of Berlin-Frohnau invited us at the Hostel Rabennest for the presentation of our project, The Colours of Berlin. Other members from other clubs-services were there. We really appreciated this meeting, and it brought us new ideas.
