Biography workshop – Design your personal memory book

With professional artistic support, you can delve even deeper into biographical topics and life stories – and record them in a personal memory book. The Dresden artist Nadine Wölk and the illustrator Anne Ibelings will give you ideas and accompany you individually in the artistic realisation of your memory books.

UPCYCLING – turn old into new

The focus will be on our memories, experiences and wishes in relation to our neighbourhood. A playful and emphatic approach to the topic, as well as curiosity and the joy of experimentation in the design process form the basis for the design of old books, which we want to breathe new life into.

For the workshop, we need old books with a hardcover that we are not too shy to paint over, cut up, tear apart, sew together or glue on. You are also welcome to bring old documents (that are no longer needed!), photos, newspaper cuttings, fabrics, papers, stamps and the like that can be incorporated into the books.

At the end of the project, the resulting works can be presented in an exhibition and everyone can also take their work home.

Das Projekt Dresdner Nachbarschaften – Damals, Heute, Morgen / Zuhören, Erinnern und Gestalten wird gefördert durch das House of Resources Dresden+. Diese Maßnahme wird mitfinanziert mit Steuermitteln auf Grundlage des vom Sächsischen Landtag beschlossenen Haushaltes im Rahmen des Landesprogrammes Integrative Maßnahmen.
