A demons­tra­ti­on in soli­da­ri­ty with non-essentials

21st of March, 2 – 6 PM

Her­mann­platz, Kott­bus­ser Tor, Schle­si­sches Tor

After a year of hard restric­tions, we want to gather the so-called non-essentials of all kinds – artists and the­se who faci­li­ta­te art and cul­tu­re, cooks, bar­ten­ders, boun­cers, gui­des… – but also all of the­se who want to show their true colours. In fact, each year, the 21st of March is the Inter­na­tio­nal Colour Day, but also the equino­xe announ­cing Spring, and last but not least, the World Down Syn­dro­me Day. In this con­text, we wish to cele­bra­te our diver­si­ty and our strength to live, stri­ve and bloom again.

We stand for gene­ral safe­ty BUT against the deba­t­a­ble rules that left most cul­tu­ral pla­ces clo­sed for a year.

We stand in soli­da­ri­ty with our elder­lies, BUT against the sacri­fice of people’s men­tal health.

We stand for cul­tu­ral diver­si­ty and FEAR to watch it eco­no­mi­c­al­ly suf­fo­ca­te.

We fol­low the rules BUT we are tired of a gro­wing fee­ling of injus­ti­ce, after mon­ths of see­ing peop­le stuck in the U-Bahn, but no pos­si­bi­li­ty to reopen muse­ums or thea­ters.

We warm­ly invi­te dan­cers, per­for­mers, jugg­lers, actors, musi­ci­ans but also visu­al artists to come out on the street to remin­der each other – and ever­yo­ne that we are here, often in the shadows wai­t­ing for bet­ter days.

We warm­ly invi­te all of you who miss art and cul­tu­re, who miss us.

Wear masks and keep distance from other par­ti­ci­pants. We wish to keep it a safe event for ever­yo­ne to par­ti­ci­pa­te.“
