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.“
